Great video! I had NO CLUE that the essay held as much weight with admissions as this lets me know. My essay is my opportunity to explain who I am aside from what my grades and the numbers say about me.

This scholarship is just one step towards funding the future. Every little bit helps to pay for college. Being able to view what other people I know have viewed, especially ones I am in classes with and have similar values as  All of which help me find more compatible scholarships for me.

This article breaks down a task like writing a college essay into several small steps that help make the process easier for students to wrap their head around. Because we all know college essays can be a daunting task, but after reading this article I feel more comfortable about the process.

Taylor Anne Teachworth's curator insight, January 15, 2014 2:21 AM

This is a FANTASTIC resource. I am the kind of person that likes to see what other people have done so I have kind of a mental outline of what people are looking for. This website gives you sample essays from some Ivy League schools, as well as others. It was a HUGE help!

Lars A's curator insight, November 17, 2014 3:34 PM

Since Elementary School we've been practicing how to write essays-and now it matters more than ever! College application essays are tricky-you have to stand out from the crowd and be unique, but make sure your essay is well-formatted and sticks to what you've learned in school. The basics are still very important: you need a intro the grabs attention, a body of work that well supports your claim, and a conclusion that effectively summarizes the paper. When writing, it's paramount to consider your audience? Who is going to read your writing, and what are they looking for when they read it? Your essay has to display to the college why you think they are a good fit for you, and why you think you're a good fit for them.

This was obviously an absolutely necessary part of this project. It was the first application I filled out in it's entirety and it suprised me just how long and demanding it was! I know now how to budget my time more wisely when starting these things.

This website is run by the Washington Scholarship Coalition. It provides access to scholarships for Washington students by connecting with nonprofit organizations, private foundations, and state agencies. Through this resource, I plan on applying to multiple scholarships.

Lauren Stiger's curator insight, November 19, 2013 11:06 AM

This site allows you access to many different scholarships to apply for. It is a free site that you can sign up for to look for any scholarship that is out there. This would be a great site to find scholarships that you wouldnt even know existed.

Alee Dedrick's curator insight, January 1, 2014 6:45 PM

It is important to find a variety of websites like this one, where I can find websites to help fund college. I want to be able to help fund my college as much as possible and new resources and sites outside of school are a great way to help my parents.

This is a video that just gives more information about scholarships and how to apply for and look for them.

Cindy V's curator insight, February 10, 2015 5:21 PM

Plenty of scholarships are out there just waiting to be filled out. Applying for them is easier than finding them, however, as it takes careful consideration on what one is eligible for.

HowCast is an invaluable resource for everything from how to sew on a button to how to fight a bear. This was a really clear step-by-step video onthe kinds of people you should ask for reccomendation as well as etiquette surrounding the process.

Cindy V's curator insight, February 10, 2015 5:23 PM

Choosing the right teacher or mentor is important for a letter of recommendation. There are ones who truly know you as  student who will write the best ones.

I don't necessarily plan on majoring in anything that will lead me to a career with NASA. However,  just seeing what different kinds of scholarships' requirements are helps me to get a better idea of how to make my college and scholarship applications look more well-rounded.
