If you’re a high school senior or current college student, you’re probably wading through a ton of scholarship applications. Do a lot of them have essays? Whether it’s a personal statement, discussing a time you displayed leadership, arguing for or against a topic, there are certain strategies and tips you can utilize to make sure all your essays are the best they can be. Read on to discover 5 tips to help you write your best scholarship essay yet!

Read Past Winning Essays

This is a great starting point to help you get an understanding of scholarship essays. Take some time to search for winning scholarship essays, or see if the scholarships you’re applying for have published past winners. This will give you an idea on what the scholarship committee is looking for.

Make a List

Need to write a personal statement or essay focusing on yourself? Start off by making a list of any interesting hobbies, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, big life accomplishments and interests, skills and activities that set you apart. Making a list will help you get everything written down, then you can start to pick and choose what you should include.

Take Your Time

Whatever you do, don’t rush through writing your essay! You don’t need to spend months crafting the perfect sentences, but writing your essay in a few hours probably won’t help you win. If it’s still a while until deadlines hit, make yourself a schedule and stick with it. Give yourself about a week to work on ideas, an outline and the actual writing, another week to have someone proof read and edit, and a few days to make your final changes and submit.

Redstone is awarding 14 scholarships this year. Have you applied yet? Each scholarship is $4,650 and open to members who are high school seniors or current college students. 

 Skim Through a Dictionary

Feeling like you use the same words over and over? Take a moment to skim through a dictionary to pick up a few new words to sprinkle throughout your essay. You can also find great word replacements by using theseaurus.com to look up synonyms. This will help you expand your word usage and keep your essay fresh and diverse. 

 Walk Away for a Few Days

Sometimes you just get stuck. If you’re feeling uninspired or just can’t find the right words, walk away from your essay for a few days. Give your brain a break to let it refresh and get the creative juices flowing again. This can also help you between the writing and editing phase; you might see edits or changes you wouldn’t without a fresh mindset.
