College Scholarship Tip: Heed Essay Word Count!
Use this college scholarship tip to write a stonger essay!
College scholarship applications that come with essay requirements usually have word limits.
These word limits (500 words, 1000 words, etc…) are in place for a number of reasons.
They keep students from rambling on and on, they save time in the judging process, and they show if a student is following directions by sticking to the required number of words.
Students who follow word count directions are looked upon more favorably than those who ignore the scholarship guidelines or decide to squeeze in just a few more words.
Scholarship judges need to eliminate the applicants that will not be winners in order to narrow down their choices and ultimately pick the scholarship recipient.
