A good place to start is to carefully examine the background of the scholarship. A maximized likelihood of obtaining money is a result of first understanding the qualifications and knowing if you fulfill them. Before you even begin, identify the potential motivations of the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board and what they hope to achieve with the Washington Scholars. If you are qualified, verify that you have a reasonable chance to receive the scholarship. If you think that you have a decent shot of actually being one of the winners of the Washington Scholars, then it is useful to fill out an application.

A vital detail of applying for the scholarship is filling out the application correctly. Occasionally the process can be drawn-out and tiresome, but it is absolutely critical that your work was done precisely and completely. Use caution to insure that you will not be bumped as the result of something that could have been avoided.

After filing, you should note when the Washington Scholars chooses a winner and distributes any funds so you'll be aware of whether or not it is possible to count on the scholarship to help meet the expenses associated with school and its personal usefulness, since there might be constraints on what expenses are covered by the Washington Scholars. It can be difficult to find ways to handle the expenses associated with school, and obtaining the Washington Scholars to defray some of the costs can provide significant support. If you are not fortunate to receive the Washington Scholars, don't give up, there are other scholarships that you can hopefully get.
