When you fill out your scholarship applications, write your essays, and prepare your scholarship resume, leave the text-type in your phone! i mean it, lol!!! Ug!

Scholarship judges CRINGE when they read text-type. The lack of punctuation, non-proper use of capitalization, and mysterious abbreviations for phrases are a red flag and will get your applications thrown right into the “reject” pile.

Sure, texting is fun, but it has no place in your scholarship applications. So as tempting as it may be to fire off that essay with text-type, be strong and resist. Let all the other applicants make that mistake, UKWIM? (You Know What I Mean?)
