Academically minded students in their junior and senior years of high school may want to think about applying for many of the small local and national scholarships that are available to students like themselves. But, these kids are already buried under mountains of homework, extracurricular activities and part-time jobs.
This How-To sheet is designed to help students get started writing a personal statement that can be saved and then tweaked for each scholarship he or she may wish to apply for. The idea is to have this personal statement ready, saved and quickly editable. Students may be more encouraged to apply for those scholarships with a little help from a caring teacher or guidance counselor and this helpful sheet.
Included are ideas to help the student stand out, because let's face it--many of today's top academic students have similar resumes. Help your academic all star rise to the top of the pile on the scholarship reviewer's desk!
