Why I Deserve A Scholarship
A perfect world would be one in which everyone was awarded a full scholarship to attend the college or university of their choice. Unfortunately, scholarship providers often can only award a few scholarships. The hardest decision for these providers is who to choose and what qualities to look for in candidates.
This page is dedicated to the most important perspective in this issue - that of the students. Below you will find quotes and videos from students explaining the qualities a scholarship winner should have and why they deserve a scholarship.
If you would like to add your own quote or video on why you deserve a scholarship, post it on our Facebook fan page and we'll add it to this page!
