How do You Write a Scholarship Application?

To have a good chance of getting a scholarship you must spend a significant amount of time on your application. You could, for example, try to find out who has received the scholarship earlier and check out how their application was written. In certain cases you can contact the administrator of the scholarship ask what they think is important when they pick a scholar. If you have received other scholarships it may be worth mentioning this in your application. It shows that you are highly valued for who you are and what you do.

If you are looking for project financing then it is important to thoroughly prepare your application. What is the primary purpose and benefit of the project? Can you motivate why your project is especially urgent or worthy of sponsorship? As written above, it is always a good idea to contact the administrator and try to find out what they value in an application.

For all types of scholarships we want to discourage copying standard or template applications which you can find on the internet. Please be inspired by examples, templates and advice but make sure to make your application your own.
