How to move on if your scholarship application is rejected

It’s only natural to feel devastated when you open your mailbox and receive a scholarship rejection email. When that happens, you might start to doubt yourself with insecurities about why you are rejected while other people seem to be awarded scholarships annually. You might even think that you have been doing something wrong or maybe you are not good enough.

So how do we overcome it and try to avoid being rejected next time?

1. Console yourself

You should bear in mind that rejection is a normal part of life and even experienced by the greatest and smartest of people. Behind every successful award scholarship are multiple rejections and there’s no shame in that because we all have to confront it no matter what.
