How do you write a personal statement for a college scholarship?

  • Writing -

    The personal statement is basically a way for you to discuss why you should get the scholarship. Choose a personal experience that relates to an academic-related positive character trait (hard-working, for example) and elaborate on how your experience affected you.

    Also, make sure to include your personal "voice" when writing the statement. The essays written for english are often impersonal literary discussions, which is not the type of writing you want here. Make your paper interesting to read.
