Scholarship paper help...
    #6533364 - 02/05/07 03:30 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I think I need help writing this application for a scholarship. Ive filled out so many scholarship aplications and I have NEVER recieved an actual scholarship..... :sad:
So tell me your tips and tricks! Prefferably someone who has been granted a scholarship...


This particular scholarpship wants me to answer:

Quote:


Applicant’s Statement:  How will this scholarship award assist in your academic pursuits?  PLEASE LIMIT TO ONE PARAGRAPH.

Really all you need to do is list accomplishments and extra-curricular activities, tell them a church you are involved with, even if youre not, grades, and most importantly, tell them why you really need it and how you plan to make their investment count.

Thats how I got my scholarships. Just make it really really good.

I dont go to church but I did mention extra-curricular activities.
But how do you make their investment count?
Is being all like "yea Im gonna be successful n shit" enough?

Really all you are doing is comforting their decision to choose you. Tell them what they want to hear, like what are your plans in the future after you recieve your degree and tell them that this scholarship can help you pursue your life long goal.

Also tell them about community clean-ups or just extra-curricular activities that deal with your degree. The community involvement such as cleaning the side of the roads doesn't have to be true, and dont feel bad lying to them either because even the smart kids lie.

Remember, you will put it to good use, or not, but do what it takes to win the competition, others do, so dont subject yourself to a lessor possiblity of getting a scholarship when others do not.

Just dont lie about something that they can check and find out you bullshitted them, such as saying you are part of a group in which you are not.

Sort of self-explanatory

Essentially you want to let them know that the extra money will be well-spent, as you will use it to pursue a goal of your choice via your academic specialties

Like if you're good in English, say you will use the money to go to a writing school or something

There is no valid reason you should be reading this

Sure, Im not gonna write a paper telling them Im gonna use their money to buy a baggie of weed. But I thought I was always writing about their money going towards an academic accomplishment and yet I never got a reply from them.

Also tell them that with their money it can help you focus primarily on your studies indstead of working to pay for your studies.

I would also include that you are baring the burden of the costs of college all on your own (regardless of this is true or not), and also include that you are planning on pursuing some sort of grad school (again, regardless of truth).

Have fun fitting all of the suggestions into one paragraph. Was there no word limit? Because I mean unless you write at an elementary school level where a paragraph is exactly 4 sentences, paragraphs can be pretty long things.
