Evaluation Criteria Used by Scholarship Committees
Considering the example of the key themes given above, we will detail what should be included in order to ensure compliance with the assessment criteria and thus have a good chance of winning your scholarship.
For leadership, we should address areas such as:
The extent of leadership experience and its degree of achievement. What were the results? Did you get new supporters, did you change behaviors?
Why did you get involved in the leadership experience. What was your initial inspiration and how did the experience make you feel? This is a very important aspect as it allows you to show your sincerity and demonstrates your passion.
What obstacles did you face and how did you overcome them? Inspiring stories of perseverance despite adversity make readers (especially judges) want to help you succeed. On the other hand, they also demonstrate their sensitivity and great leadership qualities: the ability to adapt to new situations and the determination not to give up.
What did you learn? How did these lessons shape you as a leader? Each experience brings new lessons and opportunities for personal growth and the best leaders are humble and realize this. Talking about these lessons indicates that you have truly reflected on your experiences and that you understand what leadership is. (In other words, you know that leadership is not just getting a title like “President” or “Executive Director”)
What does this mean for your future? A purse is not just a prize; It is an investment in your future. So if you plan to remain involved in your leadership activity in the future, let the judges know.
As for the impact of the community, you should mention:
How much time you dedicated to the activity. It is likely that the scholarship committee is looking for candidates who have made a fairly long commitment to a community activity.
Why was it important to you? Joy to be able to help others? Enthusiasm for trying something new? Opportunity to form relationships with others? Having a genuine reason helps build a compelling essay.
Why was it important for the community? Ask the question: What would be different for your community if you had not done what you did? It is very important to show that you recognize the real needs in your communities and act to address them.
What have you gained by giving something to the community? It is important to show that you understand how through giving, you end up getting more in the end. Sharing what community service has taught you and how it has helped you develop shows that you have really gained something very special with your participation and suggest that you will continue to do so in the future.
The most important thing in an essay is that you write in order to really show that you know who you are. What are the relevant past and present experiences that demonstrate your skills and where are you going? Use carefully selected language to emphasize your passion, ambition and enthusiasm and remember to adopt a positive mindset in which you believe in all the great things you have done and plan to continue to achieve in the future. If you do not believe in yourself, why would the judges believe? Show what life has taught you and how you have matured with your experiences. Whether they are negative or positive, everything in life always has a lesson ready to be learned.
