Scholarship Essays You write a scholarship essay to convince the scholarship committee that you deserve a scholarship. It varies greatly in subject matter or theme. This essay mush reflects your own personal experience. You should devote a couple of weeks to brainstorming ideas to express in this essay to affect the decision of the scholarship committee.
Getting Started A challenge many kids (and adults) face writing essays is getting started. The person sits there waiting for inspiration to hit them like a lightening bolt and it never happens. What can you as a parent do to help? Encourage them with the thought that great essays are never written the first time over. Get them to view essay writing as a three-part process. The first draft is only to get out the ideas and words in rough form. In the second and third effort they will add to their essay where there are blanks clarify ideas and give it a final polish. Realising that an essay isnt supposed to be perfect the first time you write it really helps some people.
One of the reasons that teachers and instructors continue to assign essays is to challenge students to think their way through a sustained presentation or argument in a logical way. Learning how to "structure" an essay is one of the most important skills that you can acquire and also one of the most difficult. If you get your structure right your essay will almost write itself whereas if you get it wrong you are almost certain to struggle. Before you begin to "write" your essay your Essay Writing Coach can help you create a structure for your essay which is very much like having a road map before you embark upon a journey. Knowing your destination before you begin is one of the best ways to ensure that you will arrive there.
