Today we’re going to show you how to fill
out your Scholarship Application. Once you apply for admission to Tarleton,
you’re going to receive this e-mail, it’s an e-mail from the Scholarship department.
In this email you’ll see the two links to fill out your Scholarship Application.
You can complete the Scholarship Application by going through these links
or if you don’t have the email and you want to complete it later, you can just
go to the Tarleton website, click on Admissions and then go to Step 3 which
is the Scholarship page. Once you get here you’re going to click on the General Scholarship Application. That’s where you’re going to fill out your application.
You’re just going to fill out one application and its going to put you in for
all of the scholarships that we offer. There are 16 pages of scholarships, instead
of going through each individual scholarship you just fill out the
application it’ll put you in for the scholarship so you’re eligible for,
departmentally and generally. Once you get to this page are going to click on
the Sign Up button. Once you get to this page you’re going to put in your email
that you use for admission and create a password- your password has to be at
least eight characters long with a capital letter and a number. After you’ve
completed this part you’re going to click on Sign Up. If your password is correct you’re going to get a
message at the top that says that a confirmation link has been sent to your
email and it’ll be the email that you just entered. You’re going to go to your email
and your going to click on the confirmation email. Once you do this its
just going to tell you to confirm your account. Just click on the link here and
it’ll take you to the application where then at that point you can start filling
it out. At the top you’ll receive another green message that says your
account was successfully confirmed. At this point you’re going to start filling
out the whole application. You’ll fill it out just like I did. Throughout the whole
application it asks several questions. At the bottom down here you’ll see some
accomplishments, awards, and honors at you’ve received. You’ll get 10 of these so use them wisely. Once you do this
you’re going have to attach a 500 word essay. Your essay is going to be for
your future plans and goals, also your accomplishments and your interests. Your
essay will be graded and that will be a portion of how they award scholarships
to you. Whenever you go here to upload your file you’ll have to save your essay
as a Word document- you’ll just go ahead to browse and then it’ll bring up all of
your documents on your computer. Just double click and open the document that
you want to select and then it’ll pop up right here. After you do this if you
don’t fill out the whole application you can go to Save and Keep Editing right here, and
anytime you want to go back to the application you can. Whenever you
sign-in, it’ll show your application right here. Obviously mine is incomplete,
so if I want to go back and keep editing it just click on the application and you
can do so. Once you complete the whole entire application, have all your awards
and honors filled out, and you’ve uploaded your essay. you’re going go down
to Finish and Submit. Once you do that your application is complete and it’ll
come to our office and it’ll be on our records that you’ve completed
application and you’ll be put in for everything. Also after you complete your
application if you would go to the Opportunities drop down and then you’re going to Recommended. This is a list of scholarships that ask additional
questions. Instead of these being put on the regular application like I told you
before that you’ll automatically put people in for, these ask just additional
questions and you need to go through here and fill these out as much as you
can, just so you’re put in for those as well, it’s more opportunities. So when you go
through, here you’re just going to read the little description. Say I’m a member of the
Bass Club, you’re just going to click on this and it’s going to stay are you
currently a member of the Bass Club? You just hit Apply. Since my application is not
complete, its not going to let me apply but whenever you click on this it will
have a Yes or No right here and you just click Yes or No and the apply button will be over here on
the right side. Apply and it’ll put you in for that. So just go through there and
see if you qualify for any of these and then you don’t have to submit them or
anything just click on the application, answer the one or two questions it asks
you, and then hit Apply and you’ll be put in for those as well. If you have any
scholarship questions or questions about filling out the application feel
