How to Get an Ivy League Scholarship. In recent years, Ivy League universities have
raised the number of scholarships they award to students. More students are seeking awards, making the
application process for these scholarships very competitive. You will need Acceptance into an Ivy League
school Good grades SAT I and II scores Essays Recommendations and advanced classes at local
community college (optional). Step 1. All of the Ivy League schools offer scholarships,
and a few schools automatically evaluate the financial needs of incoming students, but
you must be accepted first. Step 2. Ivy League scholarships are need-based, meaning
they only award scholarships to families that require financial assistance. Tuition is often waived for families that
make under $60,000 a year. Scholarship funds may be limited for international
students. Step 3. Maintain good grades in high school. In addition to maintaining a straight-A average,
take your school’s toughest classes, which will look better on your transcripts. Take advanced classes at local community colleges
if your school doesn’t offer these classes. Step 4. Score high on the SAT I and II. Different schools evaluate each test differently. Check your school to see which they value
the most. Step 5. Add flavor to your essays, recommendations,
and extracurricular activities such as being a part of an athletic team or a social club. The more unusual your accomplishments, the
more likely you are to stand out from the other applicants scrambling to get financial
aid. With focus and hard work, you’ll get what
you want. Did you know Founded in 1636, Harvard University
