Tips For Successful Scholarship Application
Research: Find out everything you can about the scholarship - foundation history, requirements, etc. Better yet, find people who got this scholarship before and ask them questions.
Focus: Apply to as many scholarships as possible, but only if you are eligible. Otherwise, don’t waste your time.
Follow instructions: Do not supply documents not required. Also, pay extra attention to all deadlines carefully.
Personalize your essay: People who will evaluate your applications don’t know you. Make sure your personal statement really shows your personality, ambition and motivation.
Review: Do a check-spell and proof-read your application and essay. Always ask someone else to proof read it again even after you’ve gone through it. It can give you a different perspective and feedback.
K.I.S.S.: Keep it simple, stupid! Evaluators look through hundreds, if not thousands of applications, so it pays to keep it simple, professional, straightforward, neat, legible and meaningful. Hint: Don’t use too many colors, fonts, effects or highlights.
Back up: Keep a copy of all submitted documents. Pays to be safe than sorry!
