BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The scholarship deadline at Texas Southmost College is rapidly approaching on Sunday, May 31.
The college’s press release said their newest scholarship application software, AwardSpring, students have a centralized location to find and apply for the 21 internal active scholarships that are waiting to be awarded.
TSC Coordinator of Institutional Advancement Melissa Muzquiz said researching and applying for scholarships is sometimes a daunting task for students and can result in funds being left untouched.
“There are a lot questions when it comes to applying for scholarships – which one is right for me, what do I qualify for and can I apply for several scholarships at once?” she said. “And with AwardSpring applying for scholarships is no longer mind boggling.”
TSC’s Foundation and Alumni Relations department, in collaboration with the Division of Student Services, implemented the new streamlined scholarship application process to give students a user-friendly system that allows the completion of one application to cover criteria for all scholarships.
The release adds for the most part, one essay and letter of recommendation will cover all scholarship applications, unless otherwise prompted by the system.
Scholarships are funds that do not have to be paid back and are made available to TSC students each semester through donations made by corporations, businesses, community organizations, individual donors and the TSC Foundation, said the release.
