There is no one way to write a winning scholarship application. Each winning application has a distinctive style employed by the author; a unique insight into his or her past, present and future aspirations. This uniqueness is the key, and the first point to remember when you pick up your pen to write. Make your scholarship application essay exclusive to you, personalize it, delve deep into your passion and drive to study your subject, and create a response that could only ever relate to you. It is this individuality that stands out, and that’s exactly what catches a judge’s eye and defines a winner.
The scholarship essay question usually has a statement that allows you to highlight your key areas of concern and things that have attracted your attention, something like: Elaborate on times where you have demonstrated responsible leadership, or innovation, and how it made a difference either in your community or in your work? Identify your key themes before answering the question in a detailed format.
After identifying the key themes, it is important to understand what each of these ideas really means, beyond the initial level. For instance, the meaning of ‘leadership’ involved identifying the effects your leadership had – the actions taken and results achieved under your leadership – and not simply describing the position and responsibilities you were in charge of. The more depth you bring to your understanding of the meaning of each theme, the more examples you will be able to identify to demonstrate your abilities.
Using the keywords from the scholarship statement throughout your essay will demonstrate your commitment to addressing the question being asked. For instance, if your key theme is ‘leadership’; ‘innovation’ and ‘impacting communities’, we surely make special efforts to refer to these words throughout your essay.
If you are struggling to start your scholarship application essay, why not include a quote or statement that relates to your intended course, and which you can later link to the main body of your text. Showing wider knowledge and aptitude for your subject will help convince the judges that it is a worthwhile investment to support you in your chosen course.
