The best essays convey your academic goals and clearly explain how the financial assistance that Foundation scholarships provide will assist you. We encourage you to be honest and forthcoming as you write your essay. Things to think about: who are you, why are you here, and why do you deserve this scholarship above someone else?
When beginning your essay, look at the prompt and address each point the scholarship application is looking for.
The essay must be from 500 – 800 words
Most essay prompts will include some similar requests (ie: "tell us about yourself"), but not all are the same. If a scholarship is geared toward volunteer work with at-risk youth, they may only ask you to address your volunteer work in that specific target area.
Make sure you read the prompt thoroughly and tailor your essay to match the application
Applying for a scholarship is like applying for a job- Make sure you know what you're applying for and portray yourself to be the best fit for that opportunity
