This article showed me exactly what scholarships are looking for. They do not want you to robotically fill out the bare minimum and tell them what they are trying to hear, they want to hear more about YOU and that is the best way for them to feel like their money is going to a good cause. Is to connect and get down to a personal level with them.

This article broke down the different type of scholarships that are out there and how to catagorize them. There are 5 types of scholarships that this article explains.
