An important aspect of applying for the scholarship is filling out the application correctly. Applications can sometimes be long and boring, but you shouldn't underestimate how important it is that you fill out the application correctly and thoroughly. You don't want to get passed over on a technicality.

Once the application is sent off, you should note when the Marine Corps Scholarship chooses a winner and distributes the resources in order to stay informed about if you can rely on the scholarship to help meet the expenses associated with school and what assistance it will provide, as there may be restrictions on how you can use the Marine Corps Scholarship. It can be difficult to cover all of your financial needs, and having the additional resources of the Marine Corps Scholarship to assist with your expenses can be a huge help. If you are not fortunate to receive the Marine Corps Scholarship, keep at it, you might find new scholarships for which you can apply.
