Each scholarship or fellowship will have specific requirements for applications, so make sure you pay attention to details.
For most awards, you'll need to write an essay describing why and what you want to study. Often, scholarships aren't just looking for academically well-prepared students--they're looking for you to write a unique, eye-catching proposal that demonstrates you understand the importance of multicultural, social, and political issues. Check out our Tips for a Fantastic Essay.
You'll also need letters of recommendation from faculty who know you well and can talk about why you're an outstanding candidate. See our Tips for Getting Great Letters.
