Choosing the Right Experience

Mattie’s main challenge when beginning her scholarship journey was choosing the right experience for her scholarship essays. Scholarship essays are not like written resumes. Rather, they require compelling writing that narrates the individual’s authentic story. Mattie had been involved in a lot of activities in high school, so she quickly realized that tailoring her scholarship essays to reflect her most relevant experiences was very beneficial to her writing process!

“When you’re starting the scholarship process, make sure you’re picking out activities that you’re actually passionate about and you actually enjoy doing. A lot of students pick out activities that they think scholarship committees wanted to hear about. Stick to what you value.”
