How to write scholarship essays?

QUESTION
How to write scholarship essays?
I’m applying for the Nancy Jacobs scholarship but I’m not quite sure how to go about writing an essay based on community service, extracurricular activities, employment history, and career goals.

I’m not sure whether I should make it very personal with my feelings about each activity and job, or just explain what I’ve in each of these fields.

ANSWER
Personal for sure!

You need to enphasize that you are really interested, well organized, and willing to work for this scholarship. They know about these things they are wanting you to talk about, they want to hear YOUR views, experiences, and such.

From what I understand, they look for uniqueness. As of every job and your resume. They want to know how you will stand out in the community and make a difference.

Explain the passion that you have, and explain that you’re willing to work your butt off to get where you want to be. You’ve got goals and you’re willing to do anything to achieve them!!

hope this helps and happy essay writing!!
