Okay, so, what is the GrantMe Scholarship Success Program?
Our program is 6 weeks long and it is broken down into 6 modules. We are going to go through what the topics of the modules and learn how they are going to help you in the scholarship process. We aim to help students become high ticket scholarship winners so that they can win anywhere from $30,000-$110,000 in scholarships, like many of the students in our program have done! If you are interested in our program I will have a link to our webinar below.
You also might be wondering what I mean about accessing $500,000 dollars in scholarships through our program. Well, every student is eligible for more than $500,000 in scholarships and our program is designed to help you find and win them.
Module 1: Creating Your Authentic Personal Brand
Scholarships are all about self-reflection. In applications, students tend to only reflect on their strengths. But in order to differentiate yourself you should be reflecting on your weaknesses as well
In English class in school, you don’t learn this type of self-reflection. It is new to most students and can be uncomfortable because you really have to reflect on your impact
Committees don’t care about you listing everything you have done. In order to be competitive, you have to dive deep into your impact and how it relates to your strength, weaknesses and values.
Module 2: Initiative in Action
In module 2 we go over what type of volunteer work will actually help you win high ticket scholarships. We look at the differences between an initiator role, leadership role and member role in extra-curricular activities and what you should be focusing on when it comes to volunteering. For example: if someone is in five clubs as a member it may be less powerful than someone who has created an initiative from scratch. We know what initiatives you need to win $70,000-$100,000 so we work with you to build initiatives that match those of students who are winning these scholarships.
One of the most important things we do in this module is break down your impact, which is key when you get to the essay writing module. You have to consider what volunteer activities align with your values and strengths. We teach you how to put others before yourself and become part of a group.
Module 3: The Winning Resume and Cover letter
Having a strong resume and cover letter is key to many scholarship applications. With a resume and cover letter, you promote yourself to potential scholarship committees and employers by giving them a summary of your skills, abilities and achievements. We teach you what to focus on when it comes to writing both your resume and cover letter, such as, formatting them correctly and effectively and also highlight what to include and not include. We find that students have a tough time keeping their writing concise and so we aim to help them structure their cover letters and resumes in the most effective way.
Module 4: Scholarship Discovery
In scholarship discovery, we teach you how to save time in the scholarship searching process and help you find the scholarships that are best fit for you. We help you create your scholarship goal so you can stay motivated and we support you in achieving that goal.
We look at the differences between university, affiliate, financial need and external scholarships and how to prioritize your applications. To track, we give you an organized scholarship tracking sheet.
Module 5 and 6: Scholarship Writing Principles and Essay Writing Structure
Out of all of the modules in this course, these are the most important two.
There are some principles that you need to follow in order for you to be a high ticket scholarship student. We teach you how to write powerful essays using our formatting system. Students get stuck in the mindset that having amazing initiatives will help you win (it does), however, if you can't write in a concise and compelling way, does it matter?
One of our goals in these modules is to get your writing to a point where you can re-use your essays for multiple applications as most of the scholarships ask you to write about your community involvement.
Through our modules and support, we aim to help you in your scholarship goal—no matter how large.
