Last minute applications are usually full of errors. Start preparing a few weeks in advance so you have plenty of time to write, edit and share with others before you send it in.
Scratch throughs and white out corrections look unprofessional on a Scholarship application. Be sure to write clearly and legibly and if you make a mistake, start a new application. If you're able, typing your response provides a clean and professional appearance.
Your application and everything submitted with your application should be read through multiple times before you submit it. Having a second person read through everything is always a good idea as well.
Your essay doesn't have to be the next contender for the Nobel prize in literature, but it does have to be clear, concise and thoroughly edited. Read your essay out loud... if you get stuck on a sentence when reading it out loud, it could probably use some revision.
Using special paper for your app and the materials you attach to the application will add a touch of professionalism to your overall scholarship packet... something clean and nice, maybe with a subtle texture... not too thick and no pictures or fancy designs on the paper.
Don't tell the scholarship committee about the time that your Dad saved the neighbor's cat from a tree. Stick to the information requested on the application that is relevant to your education, community and school experiences.
Don't wrinkle, crease or bend your materials. If your scholarship app looks like it was balled up and thrown at the wall (see # 2... print multiple apps), it will be difficult for the committee to read. Use a large envelope to mail your materials so that everything is flat and neat. Also, you may consider stapling or purchasing a cover for your packet, so that everything stays together.
