Now that the time has come for you to apply for a college scholarship you need to complete the file that is ready to be submitted to the eyes of the college examiners. This file must contain letters of recommendation, your resume, the application form and along with all these you will have to write an essay to describe yourself and why you are more important than another student to be granted the scholarship.
Of course that you do not need to explicitly formulate the essay with you winning over a huge competition, but the examiner while reading your essay to realize that you truly deserve the scholarship you are applying for.
It is more than mandatory for you to apply for more than one college scholarship if you want at least one to be granted to you, and the purpose of the essay that you write has to emerge from between the lines, and this purpose being a better knowledge on the type of person you are.
This is important for you to insert general facts of your everyday life which can reflect an accurate image of who you are in a positive light. For instance you can say that although you have always longed for the weekend days to have a rest you have decided to spent it with activities performed in the community or examples of this kind where letters of reference should be as well included.
As a future college student you have to prove that your language and way of formulating the essay do not belong to an immature teenager, therefore do not start with typical phrases such as “My name is … and I attend the classes of …”.
Through your style of writing you have to draw the examiner’s attention allowing him or her to make the difference between you and another student involving him or her into a further reading of your essay because they are intrigued (in a positive way) by your style and by what you have to say.
Next you should focus on the accomplishments that you are after once the scholarship is granted to you and how closer you will be to the dream of becoming a social assistant, for instance.
Do not overreact, just stick to the main goal of your essay: to make yourself known to the judges in an accessible and intelligible way without scattering golden dust over your statements. The spelling has to be correctly done as you wouldn’t like to disappoint an examiner who was impressed with your saying, but not with the mastering of your mother tongue.
Before sending the essay, do read it yourself and see how does this one look like i your eyes: do you appear real and close to the kind of person you are? Then you must have done a pretty good job in your honest attempt to win a scholarship!
