Scholarship Tip: Write a Killer Essay

Page

A lage part of your time and energy when applying for scholarships will be devoted to writing scholarship essays.  Many scholarship applications require at least one essay and a large number of scholarship reviewers will rely heavily on the essay in choosing a scholarship winner.  There are many things you can do to write effective scholarship essays that save you time and highlight your strengths as an applicant.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a particularily skilled wordsmith, you can write a scholarship-worthy essay if you put in the time and effort the task requires.  By learning about your audience, and what they want (one way of doing this is by reading about the scholarship contest’s mission and reading previous year’s winning essays), you can better tailor your scholarship application to their needs.  This immediately sets you apart from the students who didn’t bother to figure out exactly where they were submitting their scholarship application.  If you do it right, you can incorporate this strategy into a plan for efficient essay writing to maximize your results.  Beyond that, following other basic guidelines for the scholarship application process and scholarship essay writing will keep you on track and help you create success in your scholarship search.
