It’s important to provide accurate information when applying for a scholarship, especially if you have received other awards.

If you received multiple awards, be sure to list them all. Next, explain what you did to receive the scholarship.

Include any specific goals you have for using the money, such as paying for textbooks or tuition. Demonstrating how you plan to use the scholarship money will give the organization a better idea of how you plan to use their scholarship as well.
