Win a college scholarship based on your #1 skill
Posted On March 9, 2017
A lot of people assume that it is the perfect score (4.0 or above) that guarantees a place at the Universities, with all the expenses paid. However, this perspective has hindered a lot of talented students from applying and wining money for their college. But let us tell you something. There is a thing greater than the perfect score – that goes hand in hand with your writing skills – and it is called independence. Make it your #1 skill and all the odds of winning a college scholarship will be in your favour. Let’s see why and how. Are you ready?
The feeling of independence helps you gain more confidence in your abilities to manage on your own. Winning a scholarship is about showcasing determination, concision, and clarity. These are valuable assets that will help you while responding to essay questions. You have to keep in mind that selection committees ought to read a great number of applications and they may not read yours if it is way too long. If you are not a native speaker of the language you are writing, double check your application before submitting it. Also, choose the alternative where someone who is fluent in the language read your essay. We strongly advise you to use a word typewriter to finish your application.
The same feeling of independence will help you shed a light on your strengths and your weaknesses. Here is no room for being shy when talking about your dreams and your accomplishments also. Your application ought to give the selection committee a sharp idea of who you are, what are you studying, what are your future plans and so one. A person who lacks the feeling of independence will stumble upon these simple yet decisive questions about himself or herself. Be creative and be honest! Be prepared to explain your weaknesses in your application, such as poor grades or lack of work experience. After all, they are part of who you are and you should not be ashamed of.
Now that you have understood the importance of creating and brushing up your writing skills for an outstanding scholarship essay, a final but important thing has to be mentioned. Start early!!! Most students do not think about winning bursaries or scholarships until they have applied to college. It is then when they realise the greater costs associated with what means higher education. However, those who start early – in middle school or as a high school freshman – will benefit from being familiar with all the scholarship processes. They will be comfortable with applying for even more scholarships than their peers.
REMEMBER!!! Being independent is a vital skill for those who are willing to take control over their lives, both personally and academically. An independent person is self-motivated, hence he will make everything to accomplish his dreams.
Believe in yourself and trust your own decisions! You will see how everything around you changes positively for you to succeed.
