Do’s and Don’ts on While Apply Online National Scholarship:

Do’s For NSP Scholarship Form:

  • Read the guidelines carefully: Applicants need to read the guidelines carefully. Eligibility criteria, application guidelines, non-eligibility etc should be read carefully to avoid confusion in the next section.

  • Deadline should be carefully followed: The scholarship deadline should be strictly followed. Applicants should keep in mind the application deadline as they plan to apply for any scholarship.

  • Records (Documents) to be kept valid: All documents such as proof of ownership, address proof, proof of receipt, bank account details etc. must be kept valid before completing the application form. The app remains incomplete without all the required documentation. Applicants are also advised to keep a soft copy of all documents on their devices to ensure a smooth application process.

  • Examine the application form: Before applying the applicants are required to check the application and check all the details before the final submission. Some scholarships do not allow for adjustment after submission. Due to misinformation sometimes your scholarship may also be rejected

  • A copy of the submitted application must be kept: Keep a copy of the application process so you can keep track of its status. Applicants are required to ensure that the mobile number and email ID provided on the application form are valid as the course provider can be contacted for further selection or confirmation.

  • Complete the application form yourself: Always try to fill in the details on your personal study form as it will reduce the chances of filling out any incorrect information.

Don’ts For NSP Scholarship Form:

  • Misleading sources should be avoided: Avoid all misleading sources when applying for financial aid. Rely on trusted sources for information. Always apply for a scholarship through an official website. For information purposes, separate websites may be submitted but applications must be completed only through the official website.

  • Incomplete information should not be submitted: Never submit incomplete application forms. If an incomplete application form has been submitted by the applicant then his / her application will be rejected. As it is the responsibility of the requester to submit the full application form by filling in all the required details

  • Keep your login private: Applicants are required to keep their login confidential. Sharing your sign-in information with too many people may result in the termination of your scholarship.

  • Avoid misleading information: Always fill in clear and concise details on the Application Form because misleading information will cause your application to be rejected. The provider checks that all the information you have entered is correct but if any information you have filled in is found to be incorrect or misleading your scholarship may be rejected.

  • Never wait for a deadline: Always fill out an application form before the deadline to avoid any last-minute issues. Sometimes an official website stops working on the last day due to traffic on the website. In the end, you won’t be able to submit the request. All applicants are therefore advised to complete the application form before the closing date.
