College Scholarship Tip: Mention the Name
Use this college scholarship tip to impress the judges and win more money for school!
Here is an easy college scholarship tip that will help your scholarship essay stand out to the judges and become more memorable.
Businesses and organizations offering college scholarship money to students are just like you and me, they like and are proud of who they are!
Mentioning the name of the scholarship provider in the essay is a great way to impress the judges. Take it a step further and bring a little background knowledge about the company or organization and tie it into the essay subject to make an even better impression.
Read this tip to learn the best way to use a company’s mission statement to learn more about what they stand for and bring it into the essay.
Always double-check the spelling of each scholarship provider and make sure it is the right one, especially if using essays for more than one scholarship application.
Just like dressing to impress for a scholarship interview, polishing each essay until it shines is the best way to become memorable and one step closer to winning scholarship money for college.
