Applying for scholarships can be intimidating, however it doesn’t have to be. With advice coming from a scholarship recipient and the scholarship department, applying for scholarships is made easier.

McKayla Mangelson is a freshman at Snow College and majoring in business. What makes McKayla stand out is that she is a recipient of the Academic Elite Scholarship at Snow. Along with her academic scholarship, she is also has obtained the Regents Scholarship, Miss Payson Scholarship, and Sons of Utah Pioneers Scholarship.

What McKayla recommends for students applying for scholarships is to keep track of everything, apply for a lot of scholarships, and be completely honest. She also recommends applying for departmental scholarships and to talk to counselors to find scholarships. For those who don’t do academically well, still shoot for the academic scholarships. McKayla suggests building better relationships with professor. If one has a good relationship with their professor, they will enjoy the class more and in turn, get better grades.

“Having scholarships that require a certain GPA gets me motivated to continue getting good grades”, says McKayla when asked about the benefits of scholarships. It appears that there are plenty of benefits other than the monetary value of the scholarship that help students.

Dana Bagnell, Manager of Scholarships for Snow College, has expressed her excitement for upcoming scholarship opportunities for Snow students. Within the next few days, there will be an additional scholarship page added to the Snow College website. Aside from the scholarships provided by Snow, there will be over 200 handpicked scholarships suited for just about anyone. The categories range from STEM, disability, women, oncoming challenges, art & theatre, and general scholarships. It is worth noting that these scholarships are not just applicable to students coming back to Snow this fall, but for students transferring to other schools. These scholarships need to be applied for by November 1st, 2017.

With the end of the semester coming up, Dana says, “Finish strong and reread your contracts to make sure you are able to retain your scholarships. Thank you to those who applied at the scholarship party back in February!”

If students have any questions about scholarships, the scholarship office is open to students by appointment on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:20 – 10:20 am and walk-in appointments from 1:20 – 3:20 pm.
