A little effort goes a long way! Don't hesitate to complete applications just because they want an essay or a transcript. These scholarships could pay for your plane ticket, class materials, unforgettable trips and more. Make an appointment with the tutoring center to go over your essays before submitting. The Monmouth University Tutoring Center/ Writing Services is located on the Lower Level of the Rebecca Stafford Student Center. Lastly, don't miss out on a great opportunity because you forgot about the deadline! Keep track of when scholarships are due and create a writing schedule to help yourself keep organized.
