LETTERS OF APPLICATION
- Always enclose a letter to simply tell the scholarship committee who you are and why you are the best candidate for the scholarship. Your personal statement is viewed as the equivalent to a face-to-face interview. Take some time to make your commentary clear, concise and informative as possible.
- Share with the selection committee your personal and professional goals.
- Include activities you have been involved with, ie: clubs, sports, student government, volunteer work, co-op jobs, part-time jobs, etc.
- Follow the instructions on the scholarship application and answer any specific questions you have been asked to address.
- Know the difference between a LETTER and an ESSAY. This is a common mistake! Please use the correct format and remember to sign your letters.
