Tips for Completing Local Scholarships
Each social organization has a mission statement. Know the mission of the organization and the goals of the scholarship; this will help you emphasize the qualities you have that are shared with the organization.
Answer essay prompts completely. It is absolutely acceptable to recycle scholarship essays but make sure essays answer each prompt completely.
Share your story. Local scholarship committees want to invest in a student they believe they know. So reveal something about yourself, your life, and your challenges. Don’t try to explain everything. Just focus on one aspect of your life.
Show how your hardships have given you strength and grit. Any hardship you write about should not be written to arouse pity in readers but to show you have been strengthened by the hardship. It should also show how you would make a better scholarship recipient and a better investment because of the things you have gained and learned through your hardship.
What have you accomplished despite these hardships? How have you succeeded despite the challenges you’ve faced? Remember that every applicant has faced difficulties. What’s the different and individual to you is how you’ve overcome those obstacles.
Be specific, a common mistake in essay writing is to use general statements instead of specific ones. “I want to make a difference in the world”. How? What is your plan for making a difference?

Myth 1: Scholarships are rare, elusive awards won by only valedictorians, genius, and whiz kids.

Myth 2: All merit scholarships are based on student’s academic record.

Myth 3: You have to be a member of a minority group to get a scholarship.
