What can I do to improve my chances of getting a transfer scholarship?

Complete the FAFSA and the school-specific scholarship applications by the deadline. Earning excellent grades will also improve your chances of earning a merit scholarship which are automatically awarded based on your grade point average; the higher your GPA, the more money you are eligible to receive. Students who join the Phi Theta Kappa honor society while at BHC may be eligible for additional scholarships. (Phi Theta Kappa is open to students who have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher.)

Look closely at the general financial aid webpage for your transfer school, as well as their admissions page and the department pages for your major. Different scholarship opportunities may be shown in all these places. Also ask the admission staff about other sources of funds the college may offer transfer students i.e. campus visit awards, early FAFSA filer, out-of-state-student award, etc.
