Scholarship judges can easily see when students are creating what they think to be the perfect scholarship applicant. Keep in mind though that references are often required to share their contact information and can easily be called to verify student claims.
Also, some organizations offering scholarship money require an interview to make the final award decision.

College scholarship judge, Christina Schanda shares:
It should go without saying that you should always be truthful on your applications. Local scholarships often have review committees made up of people that may know you or your family or friends. This makes it easy to check information to confirm your honesty. Filling out scholarship applications is a similar process to filling out job applications, facts and information provided can be checked. You should should never misrepresent yourself.
