"This how-to book is full of good advice for college-bound students... An excellent guide for all students who are hoping to continue their education." -- School Library Journal "Sound advice for the college bound, and useful for counselors as well as for libraries." --Paula Rohrlick, KLIATT
In this important resource, 30 real, winning scholarship essays are analysed, revealing what makes them successful and how they fit the judges' criteria. Essays and interviews are the two components of scholarship competition that often determine the award's recipient, yet most books on scholarships simply provide a directory of awards. This book includes sample interview questions and answers, along with strategies to help students overcome nervousness and be more prepared. Roundtable panels of judges and applicants supply further inside information regarding the winning qualities sought after by award-giving organisations. Advice for finding scholarships - using books, the Internet, personal connections, and sources in the community - is covered.See all Product description

It did a good job addressing some of the writing issues I was having, and also offered some resources I had not seen before.

The key is getting your kids to actually do it. We have found that a number of schools and general scholarships have dropped the essays, however most school's Honor Programs require essays and it can be the tipping point for someone who is borderline in either grades or scores. My daughter was admitted into ASU's Honors program and her grades were not stellar but her ACT scores were. Because she didn't entirely meet the basic requirements she felt she wouldn't be given a look but we encouraged her to apply and the ideas she got from this book helped her plan out a thoughtful essay. Because they were willing to take a chance on her based on her essay, she felt motivated to achieve and completed her freshman year with a 3.8.

I use parts of this book, in a scholarship workshop that I conduct at my workplace. It has very good ideas, and some good scholarship sites. It is worth every penny
