My Thoughts:

 

  When it comes to scholarship applications, the applicants should be able to proceed college level writing in their essays. Having good grammar and well formulated essay structures always increase the chance of being selected to accept the scholarships. Most of the scholarships i will be  applying include listing of extracurricular activities. When we are to list events in an essay, the risk of having inconcise sentences and incorrect syntax become higher. It is important to 

have teachers and peers to edit the essay. Being a non-native English speaker, i always need to revise my essays around three times, then pass it down to someone else to revise it again. Some of the helpful information presented in the website, http://www.lifehack.org/articles/communication/40-tips-to-boost-your-writing-skills-to-master-level.html, can be use as a source for improving college level writing skill.  

 

  Reading though articles on writing tips is part of my assignment when applying for scholarships. The article, “40 Tips to Boost Your Writing Skills to a Master Level” is a great source to look at when I am writing official essay. Some topics that are discussed in the article include, how to generate ideas, how to effectively brainstorm ideas, how to research to complement ideas and so on. What I found most helpful is the links for articles about proper essay structures. I am not good at academic writing and my weakness is mostly on sentence structure. However, this website introduced the fundamental method of academic knowledge sharing as well as the tips on planning out a good essay structure and how to use transitions to build up strong arguments. This is a recommendable source for me to write effective scholarship essays.

This is a friendly reminder about common grammar mistakes people make when writing scholarship essays. I do not want simple grammar mistakes to ruin my chances of winning scholarships. The difference between "effect" and "affect" was not obvious to me before reading the article, and now I will not make that mistake.
