How to prepare for a college scholarship interview?

1 comment

I have an interview for a huge college scholarship from a small private college this weekend. Is there anyway to prepare, or can anyone give me tips who have done this sort of thing before? I’ll be competing against other students for it, so I have to do a good job!

Here’s a few tips:
-Be confident and enthusiastic – show that you want the scholarship!
-Be prepared!
-Smile when you meet your interviewers and shake their hand firmly.
-Be on time – come 20 minutes early.
-Practice possible questions before the interview (Why do you deserve this scholarship?, etc.)
-Remember to turn off your phone.
-Be knowledgable about the college and the scholarship.
-Have a resume on hand.
-Dress nicely – business casual, perhaps

Best Wishes,
