Avoid these awful mistakes! Looking for a scholarship essay example? Need help writing? This short essay will show you mistakes to avoid in vivid detail.
This essay would scare any scholarship foundation. I hit several elements: grammar, word choice and spelling, but not the topic and details. The topic will be sort of a spoof on the typical essay, to make the errors more obvious.
Scholarship Essay Example
Topic: How would you use a scholarship for research in Never Never Land?
As a child, I spent many summers in a land far, far away and enjoyed my expericenes there with my grandfather and grandmother in the castle. Its been many years, and since than I have studied geography as a profession. Now, as a personnel choice, I’d like to, through serious study of never never land, extensive reading of local authors, interviews with forest fairies, and observations of the lost boys, further my education.
My studies have included an internship in the land of Honnalee, where I also volunteered to work helping refugees fleeing the devastation caused by the dragon. I spent 3 hours weekly working at there shelter, providing assistance in locating they’re family members. I found this work edifying. I helped people, and learned about the indigenous population and the surrounding land. I consider the time I spent living by the sea some of my most valuable.
Do Not Make These Mistakes in Your Scholarship Essay!
This essay will not win a scholarship! It is pitiful, really. If you need money for college, write better than this. You can find over two dozen errors of word use, spelling, grammar, convention, and a surprise or two. Sadly, it is also fictional. Even if I was eloquent in describing my weekend volunteer activities, HOTDOGGER does not exist.
I hope you have enjoyed this scholarship essay sample, and learned some things to look for. Or, I hope you have learned some things for which to look. (You may have just read a hint of an error, by the way.)
