It will help if you carefully examine the background of the scholarship. Getting the greatest odds of success comes from first understanding the qualifications and then determining if you qualify. At the outset seek to understand the driving force for the University of Maine and their goals for the Distinguished Student Award. If you are qualified, make sure you have a reasonable chance to obtain the scholarship. Once you believe that you have a decent shot of actually being awarded the Distinguished Student Award, then you should use your time.

An important aspect in the process of trying for the scholarship is filling out the application correctly. Applications can sometimes be long and tedious, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that the forms are filled out properly and thoroughly. Avoid mistakes that might make you miss out on a technicality.

After the required forms have been mailed, figure out the timeframe regarding when the Distinguished Student Award chooses a winner and actually dispenses the money so that you can know if it is possible to count on the scholarship to help meet the expenses associated with school and how it will help you out, since there might be constraints on what bills you can pay with the Distinguished Student Award. Increasingly, it is tough to cover the increasing costs of education, and being awarded the Distinguished Student Award to assist with your expenses is often invaluable. Even if you don't obtain the Distinguished Student Award, don't give up, you can find different scholarships and you may find success elsewhere.
