Miami Sunset Senior High School Scholarship Bulletin November 2019 WHAT'S INSIDE • Private Scholarships • Scholarships for Students to Study Abroad • Search Engines and Scholarship Programs • On the Internet • Financial Aid help for International Students • Other Scholarship Websites 10 Tips on Winning a Scholarship 1. Start searching for scholarships as soon as possible. Don't wait until spring of your senior year in high school to start searching, or you'll miss half the deadlines. Continue searching for scholarships even after you are enrolled in college. Consider this like a full time job. 2. Answer all of the optional questions on a scholarship matching web site for about twice as many matches. 3. Use a free scholarship matching service like Fastweb.com. The Fastweb database is updated daily, and the site will email you notifications of new scholarships that match your personal background profile. 4. Look for local scholarships on bulletin boards near the guidance counselor of financial aid offices, or the library's jobs and careers section. 5. Apply to every scholarship for which you are eligible. Pursue less competitive scholarships, such as small awards and essay contests, since they are easier to win and the money adds up and helps you win bigger scholarships. 6. Don't miss deadlines. Use a calendar and checklist to get organized. 7. Tailor your application to the sponsor's goals. Read and follow the instructions carefully. 8. If you have difficulty writing essays, try recording yourself as you answer the question out loud, and transcribe the recording later. Most people can think and speak faster than they can write or type. Create an outline afterward to organize your thoughts. 9. Personalize your essay and be passionate. Write about something of interest to you. Make your application stand out from the crowd. Talk about your impact on other people. Give examples and be specific. 10. Google your name and make sure you have a professional online profile. Use a professional email address, such as email@example.com. Clean up the content of your Facebook account, removing inappropriate and immature material.

Deadline: June 19, 2020 Bottar Leone Scholarship Transitioning from high school to college can be overwhelming for any student. Having represented injured children for more than three decades – many of whom have lifetime special needs – the medical malpractice and personal injury lawyers of Bottar Law, PLLC know, first-hand, that the transition for a student with a physical or learning disability is often more difficult. In the collegiate environment, a student with a physical or learning disability must make a number of difficult and complicated decisions, including whether to e.g., disclose the specifics of his/her disability, request special accommodations in the classroom, or request other types of campus assistance. In addition, paying for college can provide different challenges, as students with physical or learning disabilities may need to purchase special equipment or hire private tutors to facilitate their collegiate learning experience. Typically, students with disabilities do not receive special financial aid consideration from the federal government. Through the Bottar Law, PLLC Scholarship, we hope to reduce barriers to education for students with physical or learning disabilities by providing additional financial security as they pursue their studies in college. Deadlines Applications for the Bottar Law, PLLC Scholarship should be postmarked no later than July 1st for the Fall semester, and December 1st for the Spring semester. Applicant Eligibility The Bottar Law, PLLC Scholarship is offered nationwide to United States citizens that meet the following criteria: A) High School graduate; B) In academic "good standing" with a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.0+ on a 4-point scale (or equivalent); C) Enrolled full-time at an accredited two-year or four-year university or community college in the United States; D) Documented physical or learning disability (students with ADD/ADHD alone are not eligible); and E) Demonstrated financial need.
