Include the university name!
Somewhere in the body of the scholarship essay, students should mention the
name of the university that he or she hopes to attend.
If the student is unsure or not yet admitted,
they can pick their first choice university and discuss how the scholarship
money will help them pay for the college of their dreams.
Scholarship judges appreciate when students
share personal information, as it helps them to get to know the student on a
deeper level and gives them more reasons to pick the student to receive their scholarship
