One critical aspect in the process of trying for the scholarship is paying close attention to the application. Applications can sometimes be drawn-out and tiresome, but it is absolutely critical that your work was done properly and completely. Use caution to insure that you will not get passed over on a technicality.

After the required forms have been mailed, you should note when the Frank Thomson Scholarship chooses a winner and makes payment of the money in order to know whether or not it is possible to count on the scholarship to help meet the expenses associated with school and what assistance it will provide, as there may be restrictions on what bills you can pay with the Frank Thomson Scholarship.
