QUESTION
I would like to know how to write an essay to apply for a scholarship?
For most scholarships offered, it is required that you write an essay. I would like to know what i should include in such an essay so that it is a good one.

ANSWER
To begin with….

1. Dont keep mentioning that you’re poor, cant afford to pay the fee and etc as every scholarship panel knows the main reason is financial difficulties.

2. Briefly explain your financial situation, family background, number of dependant in the family, indicate special issue such as if u hv handicapped family members, grandma who needs monthly health treatment, single parents, divorce, etc

3. Try to sell your positive points such as what are your interpersonal skills such as leadership qualities, concern for others, represented your state or school for particular sports or events etc

4. With all the skills besides your academic results, promise them that if you’re the scholarship recipiient, you will excel better and be a good ambassador for the funder.

Wishing you all the best in your application.

Cheers!
