Almost everyone wants to pursue and finish their education because they know through that, they can have higher chance of building a better future. Just like Adam Tracy, he was able to build a good career because he finished his studies in a prestigious university.
There are some who loses hope the moment they found out that their family cannot send them to a good school because of financial difficulties, little they know that there are institutions that offer scholarship programs to deserving individuals. Just so you know, not everyone is qualified to get them because obviously, not everyone is deserving. And also, the number of slots for scholarships is far less than individuals who are dreaming to get one. So in one slot, many dreaming students are taking their chances to get it, with this, when you get a slot, you have to make sure to maintain it.
There are some who were able to get a slot and then after a few years, get disqualified. If you do not want disqualification to happen, here are some of the tips that can help you maintain your scholarship:
- Study hard
Study hard and make sure that you maintain good grades or at least maintain your grades in accordance with their minimum standards. Do not be too complacent, especially that there are a lot of other students out there that are also qualified.
And also, good grades can give you an advantage as you go on with your career as most of the companies searching for fresh graduates, consider the applicant’s grades in determining their competence.
- Submit all requirements on time
When the institution asks for a document, make sure that you submit it immediately. Do not wait for the deadline, as much as possible, send it far before the deadline so when there are issues or problems, you can work on it and still submit their required documents on time.
There are some instances when the institution holds or even cancels scholarship if requirements were not sent on time.
- Be mindful of your conduct
You also have to be mindful of your conduct if you want to maintain your scholarship. Avoid getting into fights, troubles, etc. There are some institutions that are not focusing just on your academic grades but also your behavior.
Keep yourself away from places or events that may lead you to acting or deciding wrongfully. You have to be very careful with your actions while you are on a scholarship program, just to avoid any reasons of possible disqualifications.
- Be proactive
Be proactive and make sure that you participate in different extra curricular activities to impress your sponsors. But of course, these extra curricular should not in anyway affect your grades.
Anyway, joining different activities in school and in your community can help in enhancing and developing your character, hence if this you do, you are also giving yourself a favor. Join activities that can also uplift your confidence and can let you gain more skills.
