Reusing essays is a smart way to save time and apply for more college scholarships. Each essay should be photocopied (along with the entire scholarship application) and saved to a specific computer file before mailing or submitting online.
Save smart when searching for a specific essay to reuse by including the essay topic, word count, and name of the scholarship provider in the title or subject line when storing electronically on a computer.
For example, a 500-word essay on leadership offered by Burger King should be saved as, “Leadership500BurgerKing”.
If a new scholarship application calls for an essay on leadership, but the word count requirement is 550 words, the 500-word essay can easily be found and expanded upon until it becomes a 550-word essay.
This “new” essay is now saved as “Leadership550<name of scholarship>”.
A big part of winning scholarships is being organized and applying for as many awards as possible.
