Scholarships in General

<p>This year I applied for a lot of scholarships, and I dont really remember all the ones I had applied for. When is the typical time that recipients are notified, and if I havent heard anything, is it safe to say that I havent received that award?</p>

<p>Most have notified by now, but as for a time period it varies from a week to several months. If I were you right now, I'd assume I didn't get the ones I wasn't given semifinalist or finalist notification for, and then if you get a surprise - great!</p>

<p>Alright, thanks!</p>

<p>Sorry to say, most scholarships are hard to land. Try for local things (local Rotary, etc) who tend to be nicer about getting back to you. </p>

<p>We saw lots of scholarships go to home schooled kids because they were the ones who had the time to write long essays. Please do keep after it though -- my S just was awarded a local scholarship and it will really help!</p>
