When college scholarship application judges spread out and read all the required materials from each applicant, their desks can get a bit messy and one student’s work can very easily get mixed up with that of another.
Comparing a few scholarship essays side by side is a common practice in order to narrow down the applicants and choose a winner. The problems come when students have submitted portions of their materials without bothering to put their name or other identifying information on each piece.
Students need to make it a habit of putting their name, email address, and phone number on EACH part of the scholarship application that they submit.
When judges pick up and read all portions of the scholarship application, they should know exactly whose material they are reading. Don’t let hard scholarship work go to waste, or get lost in the shuffle, apply SMART!
