What is the Timeline for Preparing for Scholarships while in High School or in College?

Everyone wants quick fixes and instant results. The Path of Hard Work is one of the major keys to obtaining scholarship money. The path starts in the 9th grade when a student’s grade point average (GPA) begins to count toward the student’s future success in the pursuit of a scholarship. A student should maintain a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher from 9th through 12th grade and in college.
A student with a 2.5–2.9 GPA will have access to a limited number of merit-based scholarships. The majority of scholarships are highly competitive. The higher the GPA and SAT (the Scholastic Aptitude Test)/ACT (the American College Testing Program), the greater the chance for a student to win a scholarship. 

Students do not be discouraged! There are many different types of scholarships, which are not merit-based. These include scholarships for:  Community Service, Leadership, Talent/Abilities, Financial-Need, Ethnicity, Family Heritage, Faith-Based, and Military, and/or a combination of two or more of these listed.  This list is not exhaustive!

As soon as students complete the five steps to build the winning portfolio for scholarship applications, the time to start applying is immediately. The fall is the best time to get started. Scholarships are available now for students starting at five years of age!
