You should always search for the background of the scholarship. Your best chance of success comes from finding out the requirements from the start and then determining if you qualify. A good first step is to try to recognize the reason for involvement of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and what they hope to achieve with the Appalachian Scholarship. If you are qualified, figure out if you have a reasonable chance to receive the scholarship. If you think that you have a decent shot of going on to be one of the winners of the Appalachian Scholarship, then you should use your time.

A crucial detail of applying for the scholarship is filling out the application correctly. Some forms are time consuming, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that the forms are filled out precisely and without omission. Pay careful attention so that you won't miss out because of some minor point.

After the required forms have been mailed, you should note when the Appalachian Scholarship actually dispenses the resources in order to know whether or not it is possible to count on the scholarship to help meet any bills associated with your education and what assistance it will provide, as there may be restrictions on what bills you can pay with the Appalachian Scholarship. It can be difficult to find ways to cover the expenses associated with school, and having the additional resources of the Appalachian Scholarship to defray some of the costs can make things much easier. If you are not fortunate to receive the Appalachian Scholarship, keep at it, search for additional scholarships and you may find success elsewhere.
