Strategy for Organizing Scholarship Hunting

App: Google Docs http://drive.google.com

Help your students create a Google account where they can keep track of the scholarships that they are finding and applying for.  They can then share this folder with their parents or counselors.

  1. In a Google Sheet, collect information about the scholarship including due dates and application items.
  2. Create the folders for recommendation letters, essays, and photos.  These will be the master files.
  3. Create a folder for each scholarship and copy the needed documentation into each folder.
