1312 What does the panel require? Look again at the selection criteria on the information sheet available on the CDU Scholarships website. Are there any points they have asked you to cover specifically? If it says Demonstrate passion, ability and initiative then you will need to do just that. These are helpful things to include in any application but if they are asked for specifically, make sure they are there. Check for other specific information and include it in your statement, as well as providing supporting documents. There are no rules on how to set out your statement but it is recommended to use the selection criteria as headings and answer these directly underneath. This method makes it easy for the panel to identify that you have addressed the criteria. You may also like to write a less formal section with further information about yourself at the end of the application. What is the panel looking for in a recipient? This requires some reading between the lines. For example, the Chief Ministers Scholarship for Women requires applicants to demonstrate a commitment to the Northern Territory and intention to use her qualifications and skills in the Territory. You need to state that you intend to use your qualifications in the NT, but also you should understand they are looking for someone who will get involved in and give back to the community. A great way to demonstrate your ties to the NT would be to mention your participation in any community groups, sporting teams or even social clubs you are part of. Who is giving the scholarship and what is their background/ purpose? Do some online research. Find out a little bit of information about the donor of the scholarship. Tying this information into your statement shows you have done your homework. If you can relate this to yourself and your goals, then even better. Kirstie Scullen I have a love and passion for visual arts which is why I have chosen to complete a Bachelor of Creative Arts and Industries (Visual Arts). I am grateful and honoured to be the recipient of the Edgar Dunis Arts Scholarship for 2016. This scholarship has relieved the stress of balancing study, work and volunteer community work. Additionally, it has given me the confidence and determination to do better in my studies. 1312
