What if I do not feel confident in the scholarship I am applying for?

Starting the scholarship process and writing your first scholarship essays can feel a bit daunting at first.

Remember to have confidence in the leadership roles you've had!

Every single scholarship that exists will require you to discuss your leadership or volunteer experience to some extent. The idea is to shape those roles into an essay to make them impactful to the reader. This is where GrantMe can help!

If you are unsure what to write in your essay, do your best to approach the topic and then share any questions you have with our editing team. You can do this by adding a comment to your Google Doc and submitting it for editing through the app. Make sure you always include the essay prompt at the top of the page so your editor can give you the best advice possible!

When a scholarship asks a specific question that is not related to your community involvement or leadership, you still want to try and make a connection to the way you have given back to your community. 

A great way to start is using our essay template builder located on the platform! Once you have completed your first draft, send it to our editing team so we can help make your essay stand out!
