Science Scholarships Make You Smarter
Whenever you apply for a science scholarship, you are getting real-world practice in a lot of important skills. You will probably have to organize your thoughts to answer essay questions. You may have to think deeply about your plans and goals for the future.
If there is an interview for the science scholarship, you'll get to practice your speaking and presentation skills, which will be useful in many situations for the rest of your life.
Not to mention the money you could gain!
Many science scholarships require you to somehow think about a problem, write about a solution, or carry out a project or research. These challenges are often more rigorous and more competitive than anything similar you do for your science class. They will help you learn even more, and of course the rewards are greater.
My advice is to learn about as many science scholarship opportunities as you can, and be sure to apply to all the once you're qualified for. This is a great way to learn more, pay for your higher education, and even prepare for a career.
