The Memorial Scholarship Essay
Please prepare an essay of between 250 and 500 words describing why you believe you qualify for the Memorial Scholarship. This is an opportunity to promote your attributes and tell us why you are a deserving candidate. Your essay is heavily weighted in the Scholarship Committee’s evaluation of your qualifications, accounting for 30% of your total score, so please take it seriously and prepare a well-written essay that has a logical beginning and end, one that tells us about yourself, including (among other things) your strengths, your goals, your area of intended study and why you are choosing it. This essay is your chance to differentiate yourself from other applicants.
