You need to realize that scholarship committees have their eligibility requirements. This is necessary to make sure that only the most qualified students receive the scholarships. Here are qualities that every scholarship committee is looking for:

  • Strong academics – Most scholarship committees will look into your overall academic standing. You will have to meet a minimum GPA because this reflects your commitment to studies. If there is a particular field you excel in, apply for a scholarship in it.
  • Work experience – Mention your internship and work experience when you apply for scholarship. Your work history reflects how much you handle responsibility and initiative. Make sure you include letters of recommendation from your employers.
  • Community service – Being an active part of the community is attractive to a selection committee. Those experiences indicate that you are civic-minded and care about causes beyond yourself.
