You might want to start by looking at our online book: Scholarships 101: The Real-World Guide to Getting Cash for College. Chapter 8 has a section about Essay writing, dos and don'ts, tips and tricks; and Appendix A has a list of helpful websites you might want to check out.

In general, be sure to specifically address any areas or questions noted on the scholarship form. You might also want to contact your Student Advisor or Career Services Advisor for additional guidance and support.
