A good place to start is to investigate the background of the scholarship. Getting the greatest odds of obtaining money can be attained by initially researching the prerequisites and making sure you meet them. A good first step is to try to recognize the potential motivations of the Ohio University and their reason for offering the Founders Award. After making sure you satisfy the prerequisites, you should determine if there is the possibility of being awarded the scholarship. After figuring out that you have the possibility that you can be a recipient of the Founders Award, then it is worth it to use your time.

A crucial part in the process of trying for the scholarship is paying close attention to the application. Occasionally the process can be long and tedious, but it is absolutely critical that the forms are filled out correctly and completely. You don't want to be bumped as the result of something that could have been avoided.

After filing, it's important to know when the Founders Award chooses a winner and actually dispenses any funds so that you can know if you can rely on the scholarship to provide additional support for the expenses associated with school and how it will help you out, stipulations may exist in what can be paid with the Founders Award. Recently it has become more burdensome to find ways to manage all of your financial needs, and getting the Founders Award can be a huge help. If you are not fortunate to receive the Founders Award, try not to be upset, you might find new scholarships for which you can apply.
