Seeking Scholarships: Application Tips for Graduate and Undergraduate Studies in Health and Physical Education.
Okeke, Maria U.; Geiger, Brian F.
This collection of 31 presentation slides provides suggestions for students applying for health and physical education scholarships, offering guidelines and specific resource information. It focuses on myths (e.g., scholarships only go to the best students, obtaining a loan decreases the chances of receiving a scholarship, and paying for a scholarship search service is a good investment); facts (e.g., over 1/3 of available funds are unclaimed annually, $28 billion worth of scholarships are available from the private sector annually, and awards are often highly competitive based on achievement); guidelines for scholarship applicants (e.g., be willing to spend time to locate and apply for awards; use free Web site searches; do not delay in ordering copies of official transcripts and test scores; submit completed applications early; and pay attention to spelling and grammar); selected scholarships in health, physical education, recreation and dance; and scholarship resources.
