Since taking over this site’s scholarship duties earlier this year, I’ve read a lot of scholarship applications. Like, A LOT a lot. And yet, I’ve probably skipped twice as many as I’ve read—sometimes based just upon the award’s name.   I know: You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, nor should you dismiss a scholarship based on its name.
