First off, I would like to say that your tips are, by far, the best pieces of advice I have ever read on writing to win scholarships. I have spent days reading articles attempting to help the applicants but until now they have been sub-par. You clearly outline every area of how a scholarship applications go dead wrong. I love the way you bluntly describe the mistakes the majority of students make when writing scholarship essays. I greatly appreciate your spot-on advice and say “Keep the Tips Coming!” — Matt Long
