Scholarship FAQs

What do I need to include in my scholarship application?

Application requirements will vary from scholarship to scholarship. At a minimum you should expect to include your academic transcripts and a few recommendation letters. It is also a good idea to add a cover letter or personal statement highlighting why you should be considered for the scholarship.

What can I do to increase my chances of getting a scholarship?

As an overall approach, applying to multiple scholarships gives you a greater chance of winning an award. To save time, look for scholarships that do not require an essay. BrokeScholar makes these easy to find, just click “Easy to Apply” when filling out your search.

Can I apply for a scholarship if I already have financial aid?

Yes, you may apply for a scholarship even if you have received financial aid. Financial aid and scholarships are two separate forms of financial assistance. Whether or not you are receiving Financial aid has no bearing on your ability to receive a scholarship.

Do I need to submit a FAFSA to apply for scholarships?

While most scholarships do not require a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), it may be part of the application process for some. Typically this is to help determine your financial need.

Do I have to pay to apply for a scholarship?

No, you should never have to pay to apply for a scholarship. If a scholarship is asking for payment or fee, it is likely a scam.
