Scholarship essays are written in order to apply for scholarships in any preferred institution.
Scholarship essays are a little different than academic essays. Academic essays are written either for essay competitions, assignments, or for examination purposes.
Academic essays could be a little less serious, while scholarship essays could not afford to lose the serious tone and professionalism.

For any kind of essay, students need to decide on a topic. The better the essay topic, the better will be the content of the essay.
When we talk about scholarship essays, students might find themselves in both the situations where they have the topic is given and where they have to select the topic themselves, it depends on individual institutions.
In the cases where topics are already given, students can only focus on their content and try to make it as impressive and presentable as possible. But when students are given the freedom to select their topics that is when they are at advantage. Students can select any topic they are most comfortable with and write on it.
Students in such situations can also select any previously written essay or topic as long as it is their original piece and not copied from elsewhere.

Body of the essay
Once the students have selected their topic, the next step is to collect content for the main body of the essay.
Students should start by reading books, articles, and journals that they think might contain information on their topic. Students can find books in school or academic libraries as well as online libraries that are open and available to students for free.
Collecting information from books and educational articles add to the authenticity of the essay that students write as well as increase their validity and reliability. Most students online refer to pre-written essays that are available easily on the internet, these essays reflect poorly on the personality of the student and may become a hindrance to their chances to get a scholarship.

Conclusion of essay
The last component of the essay is the conclusion. Many times students get stuck on the conclusion of the essay, they can easily write on and on, in the main body but fails to conclude the essay.
We recommend students read a number of essays on the topic similar to them to understand how a conclusion can be written for that essay.
Students can conclude a quote or a phrase or prose of their own or of some famous person to make their essay more impactful. Students can include a quote even at the beginning of the essay to make the reader curious and satisfied with the reading. Students must not make their essay chaotic and messy. They should use only a single color pen with the same texture so the essay does not look uneven to the readers. Students should also highlight or underline the important points of the essay.
