ANSWER
Once you figure out what to write about, it should be easy to start with some opener and write your essay based on some experience that highlights a good attribute or based on some good attribute that you can highlight in experiences you’ve had.
Think of any unique experiences you have, then try to see if you can relate the experience to some good attribute you have that would relate to the scholarship you’re receiving, such as an experience when you helped others in need if the scholarship is related to community service, etc. If the scholarship isn’t looking for anything specific, then just find a good attribute like leadership, etc.
Or think of any attributes that are good and/or relate to this type of scholarship and then think of any experiences you’ve had that highlight this attribute.
