1514 Tell the panel about yourself but keep it relevant The panel that assesses each scholarship wants to get to know you. They want to have an idea of who the recipient is, not just their ability to address selection criteria. If you can include personal information and keep it relevant, then do so. For example, a person who grew up in difficult circumstances might tie that in to why they want to study social work, or a person who grew up with a family involved in motor sports might tie that into why they want to study mechanical engineering. Include personal information in your application as long as it relates to the category of scholarship you are applying for. Give them something extra Finally, think about your competition, particularly for a scholarship which is aimed at a specific course. Consider that the other applicants will be reading this too. What sets you apart from them? Why do you deserve or need it more? No examples here; you will have to think about this and demonstrate how you can stand out from the crowd!
