Tips For Writing Scholarship Essays

Fact number 1: A large percentage of scholarship applicants today fail in writing one of the most important stages in application: writing a

 good 
scholarship

 essay 
.

Fact number 2: You could be one of them.

But from these 2 facts, we can still arrive to a third one: there is still hope.

Yes, you can still write a scholarship

 essay 
that creates result.

Whether you are a writing guru or a high school slob, you can always write a

 good 
scholarship

 essay 
if you follow one basic writing secret (which of course is not a secret at all, it is just that few people follow this): simplicity.

Here are the tips in writing simple yet effective scholarship

 essay 
:

· Write as you speak.

“Thesaurusizing” your scholarship

 essay 
would have two effects: one, wrong use of terms will detract the purpose of the

 essay 
, and two, you probably will not pass. The thing is: keep it simple, clear and precise. Use words that are easy to understand like the words you use when you converse.

· Write interestingly.

Make sure you don’t bore your readers. Keeping up a lively

 essay 
would let your reader to finish your

 essay 
but make sure you still focus on the purpose.

· Tell about yourself

Since you are writing to ask a sort of “favor”, your reader would like to know more about yourself. Usually, most scholarship application would require you to pass an

 essay 
together with your resume. Write things about yourself that are not included on the resume.

· Keep it short

Write a short scholarship

 essay 
but it does not mean you omit important sentences that needs be addressed. Never be wordy on your

 essay 
. If you can pack your thoughts in the shortest possible terms, do so. It is

 better 
to read a 5-liner paragraph than a 10-liner that says the same thing.

· Do variations

If your first sentence starts with an “I”, the second sentence should be different. Be creative in writing your

 essay 
.

· Use active voice

Using active voice (sentences without the use of the word “be”) keeps reading continuous and interesting. Using passive voice on the other hand keeps the

 essay 
uninteresting and flat.

· Seek for opinion

If you have finished writing your

 essay 
, let others read it so that you get feedback. In this way, you can improve your articles more.

· Edit, re-edit and edit some more

Make improvements. Read your

 essay 
over and over again until you are confident that it is error-free.
