(There are tons of public scholarships/government-funded scholarships you might be counting out)

Applying for too FEW Scholarships

(Research about all the scholarships available, and try to apply to all of them)

Not paying attention to DEADLINES

(Stop procrastinating and apply before the deadline hits)

Avoiding applications INSTRUCTIONS & making silly MISTAKES

(Make it a habit to double-check your work, essays, and all the documents)

Looking for scholarships a LITTLE TOO LATE

(Start your scholarship search as soon as you get your admit)
