Sample Essay 1:
should you be selected for a scholarship? Please describe any academic
achievements, community service activities, examples of leadership, or
other personal characteristics that make you deserving of this scholarship?
The scholarship award will only push me further towards my Accounting degree and my dreams of one day having a successful career as an Accountant. Being the first generation in my family to attend college, I have always aspired to learn the right way to manage money and to produce successful budgets. I also believe in giving back to my community by helping others in financial crisis, so they won’t have the same financial burdens that I had growing up in a single family Household.
Five years from now I see myself employed at a large local firm, crunching numbers, evaluating, and solving certain financial matters. I just feel blessed that I am given the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship to help fulfill my dream and I will prove that I do have what it takes to not only be a successful student, but an outstanding accountant.
Sample Essay 2:
What Does this Scholarship Mean to You?
While education can open many doors, success relies on initiative. I have the desire and the determination, but lack the financial backing needed to achieve my goal of becoming a Hospital Administrator. This scholarship would award me an opportunity to pursue the career of my dreams; a career rooted in service but threatened by a loss of altruism. My desire is to give a little bit extra and do a little bit more.
Receiving financial aid would allow me to make a difference in the ever changing, and challenging, world of health care. My family has always supported my efforts, but unfortunately they cannot afford my college fees. That is why I am taking the initiative of applying for a scholarship. My education will not be by chance, but by choice. These are my aspirations and I ask that you make them your choice.
