Before completing a scholarship application make copies of the form. Use your sloppy copies to record the information you will need before transferring it to the official application. Your final product will reflect your extra effort.
Although many national scholarship applications processes do not allow any “window dressing” on their applications, local scholarship committees are often impressed and influenced by applications that have a special look. You might design a cover sheet for your scholarship application, which includes the name of the scholarship, your name, the date and a color photograph of you. Place the entire application in a clear presentation folder or notebook. Your extra effort will not go unnoticed.
