If you are currently applying for UNITY Newspaper Internshipname, one of your best practices is to save all of your work on the computer. Don’t simply write out your essay, you should type it out first, and then attach it with a staple. The importance here is that you gain the ability to reuse many of the answers on the application, especially the essay itself. This will save you time, and it will allow you to apply to even more places awarded by different sponsors, like Native American Journalists Associationname. The more places you can apply to, the better your chances of landing some serious scholarship money. You don’t want to find yourself doing just enough scholarships to get none of them. It’s best to get as many hooks in the water as possible.

You need to know your audience. For instance, if you are applying to UNITY Newspaper Internshipname that is very “philanthropist friendly”, then be sure to describe all the times you volunteered, went on missions trips, etc. Also, if you are applying to a military institution, then be sure to talk about your leadership abilities and even your family’s heritage with the military. Not all applications are the same, and some need specific tailoring. Also, make sure that you are not saying in two words what you could say in one word. The easier your application is to read through, then your audience will not grow board reading it. You want to make it very simple and easy to read, offering you a chance to get them to like you.
