The Scholarship Essay
The college scholarship essay is the most important part of the scholarship application, yet also the most feared by the majority of students. How can students overcome this fear? Keep reading…
This is another popular question that comes up a lot in scholarship discussions. I have a lot of helpful and winning suggestions in my scholarship guide, but I’ll share one here:
Write from your heart!
Seriously students, bring real emotion into your essay and write about something close to your heart that you are truly passionate about.
Don’t fake it.
Don’t overdo it.
Just honestly write about how you feel about something and use lots of descriptive words.
Make your essay come alive in the judges’ minds.

I have lots more suggestions and scholarship essay writing help in my scholarship guide ebooks.
I hope you will consider making the small investment of purchasing my guide to help you possibly win thousands of scholarship dollars.
This mom says it best,
“I have used the guidelines from Monica Matthews’ ebook. This was such a great starting point…definitely my “go-to” on how to start the process of scholarship applications. In addition, I have purchased Monica’s Scholarship Toolkit Organizer, which is a great way to organize materials and monitor deadlines (rather than notes written all over the place).
The ebook provides you with guidelines and tips that are best practices. Our school’s guidance office only provided a minimal list of scholarships. Monica is tremendous in offering potential scholarship information or answering any questions I may have (that is worth her weight in gold). My son had success winning 15 scholarships (local and national). He was a good student, but nothing like some of the stats I have read from other parents. So it is possible…keep applying!” D.E., Indiana
Also, this dad,
“My daughter has won over $32,000 in scholarships so far! When she gets tired of applying, I remind her that she has made over $200 an hour so far and that gets her excited again. She is my second daughter to use the ideas in your scholarship guide ebook with success.” Proud Dad
