Dare to win!
"Applying for college scholarships requires you to risk putting yourself out there," says author Kristina Ellis in Confessions of a Scholarship Winner . Here are some of her favorite tips for winning the funding you need to go to school. The first: Be Fearless! "I've found a certain amount of fearlessness evident in people who succeed, and especially in major scholarship winners. That passion and burning desire to ﬁnd success motivated me in my scholarship quest, and it can surpass all the fears or doubts that try to hold any student back." Does being fearless mean that you’re never afraid? Absolutely not. It just means reaching deeper within—past the doubts—to ﬁnd the courage to overcome whatever might be getting in your way. You may get rejected sometimes, but if you don’t put yourself out there, you won’t win anything. So give yourself a chance! Fearlessly put yourself in a position to succeed . . . and see what happens!"
