        the essay__________________________________________
Most organizations awarding scholarships require an essay as part of the application process. The essay is the most important part of the private sector scholarship search.

The following excerpt from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) application material emphasizes the importance of the essay and contains good advice no matter where you are going to college:

The essay is an important part of your application for admission and for scholarships.

For these purposes, the University seeks information that will distinguish you from other applicants. You may wish, therefore, to write about your experiences, achievements, and goals. You might, for example, discuss an important life experience and what you learned from it. You might also describe unusual circumstnaces, challenges, or hardships you have faced. School activities and experiences are also topics to discuss in your essay but they do not need to be the focus.

Rather that listing activities, describe your level of achievement in areas you have pursued -- including employment or volunteer activities -- and the personal qualities revealed by the time and effort you have devoted them.

Also, discuss your interest in your intended field of study. If you have a disability, you may also include a description of its impact on your experience, goals and aspirations.

The University seeks information about any exceptional achievements such as activities, honors, awards, employment or volunteer work that demonstrates your motivation, achievement, leadership and commitment.
Make sure your essay is neatly typed, well written and does not contain grammatical erros or misspelled words.
