How Am I Supposed To Format My Submissions?

So, you received a 5/5 in your essay... what now? Time to submit that awesome essay to the scholarship committee!

Each scholarship is different and the application page should outline how you are supposed to format your essay.

In cases where the application does not mention anything about formatting, keep your submission as professional as possible. Sadly, this isn't the place to bring out comic sans or any of those fun fonts! Try to use:

  • 1-inch page margins
  • 12-point font size
  • double-spaced
  • standard fonts such as Times New Roman or Calibri
  • use a black font colour
