Scholarship Essay Writing Tips

In addition to minimum requirement criteria such as GPA and enrolled credit hours, essays are heavily weighted in determining the award of any available scholarship.  A well-written, carefully constructed essay can very well be the determining factor in awarding a scholarship. The following are some suggested tips for a successful scholarship application:

  • Create an essay that is well thought-out.
  • Be sure that you specifically address what is being asked.
  • Proofread before submitting - misspelled words, grammatical errors and improper punctuation may cost you the scholarship.
  • Have someone else review your application - a second pair of eyes may find something you missed!
