Recycling College Scholarship Essays is just plain SMART!

(Post updated November 2019)
Reduce, reuse, and recycle! These are the words of this ever-increasing “green” world in which we all wish to help create.
Recycling is the right thing to do and the smart way to live.
Students wishing to win as much money for school as possible in the least about of time can take the recycling route and use their college scholarship essays for several applications.
They can write a few quality essays on popular scholarship essay prompts such as:
- Why do you think you deserve the scholarship money?
- Explain your community service project in detail or share how you have helped your community.
- What are your future career plans?
Students can then save these essays and adjust the word count for lots of different scholarship applications.
Each scholarship essay should be tailored to the organization offering the scholarship, including the specific name of each provider.
Tweaking the essays to reflect the values and beliefs of the company or organization will give students a better chance of winning as I share in detail in this post.
Using the same essay, with a few changes, for several applications will save students tons of time, which in turn allows them to apply for more scholarships.
The more scholarships a student applies for, the better their chances of winning. Parents can play a big part in this process by helping their students find scholarships that they qualify to apply for and passing this information on to their students.
