How To Write A Scholarship Essay:

Scholarship Essays should use this formatting unless specified otherwise:

  • Two to three pages in length
  • Double spaced
  • Times New Roman font
  • 12 point font
  • One-inch top, bottom, and side margins

 These scholarship essay examples are provided for insight on how to write a scholarship essay.

Scholarship Essay Example 1 addresses the following question: "Choose a book or books that have affected you deeply and explain why." In this case, the applicant has chosen the novel Germinal by Emile Zola. The essay is strong and well-written, although not without its flaws.

Scholarship Essay Example 1

The scholarship essay example 2 question (Who has been the most influential person in your life?) is a common scholarship prompt. The example posted here is a winning scholarship submission that deals effectively and affectionately with the question.

Scholarship Essay Example 2

Essay examples 3 and 4 are in response to (e.g, "Why do you want to go to college" or "Describe a major hurdle or obstacle you've had to overcome".). Both examples deal with the same theme (sick parent) but utilize different approaches. In addition, one is a 500-word response and the other is a 1,000-word response.
