After watching this week’s videos, be sure to write your scholarship essay.
Before writing the essay, make sure to research the organization’s mission and values. These can usually be found on their website under the “about” or “history” tab. There, you will find keywords/ a list of characteristics saying that they value “leadership” or “hard work” or “determination,” etc. Be sure that you pick at least one of those characteristics listed on the site to include in your essay. That way, the organization knows that your goals and values will align with theirs and you will be seen as a very qualified candidate for the scholarship.
