You need to know your audience. For instance, if you are applying to Wayne Kay Co-op Scholarshipname 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.

It is important to make you application easy to read.

In addition to that, nothing would drive you crazy more than seeing stupid mistakes on an application. So, if your application is easy to read, without any glaring errors, you’ve already made friends with the reviewer. Reviewers are the gatekeepers, and it is important that you get them on your side.
