Scholarship Myth #5: You have to be a great writer

Myth: You have to be a great writer. 

Writing scholarship essays isn't like your traditional Comp II essay, so even if you don't like those essays, you can still be successful in the scholarship essay. This means you don’t need to be the most talented writer, but you do have to be persuasive, organized, passionate, and understand your subject. This alone will get you far in the writing world, no matter what you have to write!

Scholarship Myth #4: You can be clueless about your life.

Myth: You don’t have to know what you want to do with your life. 

Scholarship providers are looking to fund passionate people who know why what they’re doing is their heart passion and is going to change the world. That means, if you're clueless, you're not going to be doing yourself any favors.

Knowing those two points -- why what you're doing is your heart passion and is going to change others -- in any job, activity, or hobby for the rest of your life will make you an invaluable asset, so find out what your passions are now!
