Essay writing is a very crucial part of the vast majority of scholarships. A lot of applicants think they need to be very creative and try to impress the essay reviewers – both are wrong ways of doing it.

Winners of scholarships have actually been those who wrote simple ‘is’ and ‘was’. The scholarship committees want to know whether you meet the criteria they set or not. So, focus on those to increase your chances of winning.
