What are the benefits should I be looking for?

When taking scholarships what i should look the most? Like, the allowance or the load of work? Or do i have to rely on my scholarships? I'm just confused, and need advice because I might mess up and would end up dropping a scholarship from another scholarship. Thank you.

Typically the amount of work to complete the scholarship and the amount the scholarship provides go hand-in-hand. So scholarships which offer more money usually are going to be more time intensive and scholarships which are quick and easy to do usually don't offer too much money. If you're looking to have scholarships pay for most of your schooling then you're going to need to apply to as many as possible. Use your school resources and check out the local scholarships and then move on to others you find.

I'm not sure what you mean by "do I have to rely on my scholarships" but if you already have some scholarships, no you don't need to rely just on those. You can apply for more scholarships
