Scholarship Pitfalls


FAILURE TO CHECK FOR SCHOLARSHIPS:  Remember to check the Guidance Office or the webpage http://www.torrington.org/page.cfm?p=283 for scholarships that become available. Scholarships are added on a frequent basis so please be sure to check it at least once a week!

FAILURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS: Many submitted applications are disqualified because all requested and necessary documentation have not been submitted with the application.   READ THE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY!

BEWARE OF DEADLINES: Failure to adhere to stated deadlines can cause you to lose out on scholarship opportunities. Plan of action – Complete and submit your applications well before the deadline.

ENVELOPE & STAMP(S): When an original transcript is required to be sent with an application, please remember to provide a stamped envelope addressed to the scholarship organization together with a signed Transcript Release form (make sure proper postage is on envelope)! Again….. be aware of deadlines! Transcript releases, SAT/ACT scores, teacher recommendations, etc., may take time to assemble so please submit applications ahead of deadline date!

FAILURE TO SUBMIT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS: Many students will request local scholarship application forms they are eligible for but DO NOT return or submit the completed applications. You won’t be considered for a scholarship if an application is not submitted.   (Ex: Only 28% of Dick’s Restaurant Scholarship applications were returned the day prior to the deadline and only 33% of the THS Scholarship packets were returned by the due date)

NOTE: Scholarships are not only for seniorsStart looking for scholarships in 9th grade. Use www.fastweb.com. The only person who is guaranteed not to get a scholarship is the one who doesn’t apply.
