What happens after you get a scholarship?

Why should you be awarded this scholarship?
You’re asking the scholarship committee to invest in your future. They want to ensure their investment goes to a worthy cause. Explain how your education will play a role in your career and overall goals after graduation. Focus on the purpose of the scholarship.

What do you say when you win an award?
In light of this miseducation, I’d like to offer three tips for accepting compliments or awards:

- Say “I’m honored.” Viewing something as an honor means you respect the giver of the award or the compliment.
- Give credit where credit is due.
