OTHER HELPFUL WEBSITES
MHS, OSAC, and SOCC Scholarship Applications all use the same essay questions. Start working on them now!
Let your Personal Statements tell your story. Donors are looking for reasons why they should choose you for their scholarship award. Show the “unique you” in your Personal Statements and use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Don’t repeat information already included in your application, such as that your greatest accomplishment is your GPA. Focus on something unique about yourself! For all Personal Statements, pay attention to the topic and any length requirements.
Word Limit: 1,000 character limit for each statement. (approximately 150 words)
1: Explain your career aspirations and your educational plan to meet these goals.
2: Explain how you have helped your family or made your community a better place to live. Please provide specific examples.
3: Describe a personal accomplishment and the strengths and skills you used to achieve it.
