Essays Main Content
For some scholarships, essays are the only way the scholarship committee can learn about the candidates. Here are some helpful tips for writing good essays:
- Take your time! Don’t rush through the essay section of the application. It may take time, but this could help the committee determine who will ultimately receive the scholarship.
- Be thorough! Answer the question completely, but within the guidelines. Don’t skip over sections because they seem boring. However, don’t write longer than the scholarship requests. If the applications requires a 1-2 page essay, don’t write 4 pages.
- Use Resources! Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Your teachers and parents can help you proofread your essay.
