GUIDE TO WRITING YOUR SCHOLARSHIP RESUME
A neat, well-written resume could assist you in your search for scholarship funds. Many scholarships require students to include a scholarship resume that outlines their personal accomplishments. You could also refer to your scholarship resume when completing the forms and essays necessary to apply for scholarships. Even if you do not have tons of experience, you can still put together a solid resume using the tips below.
1. KEEP YOUR SCHOLARSHIP RESUME RELEVANT
Your resume is meant to introduce you and your background to a scholarship committee who has never met you. Stress the things that are most positive about you.
2. LIMIT YOUR RESUME TO ONE PAGE
Use a font that is easy to read. The font size should be between 10 and 12; your headings may be larger. Ideally, margins should be one inch.
3. BE SPECIFIC AND TRUTHFUL
Be complete, descriptive, and specific without being too lengthy. Always be truthful and accurate without exaggeration.
4. ACCURACY IS IMPORTANT
Make sure your resume is organized and very neat. It should be free of any spelling or grammatical errors. Have an instructor, classmate, or supervisor proofread and critique your resume.
5. ALWAYS USE ACTION WORDS
Avoid passive or weak phrases.
6. OMIT ALL PERSONAL PRONOUNS
Examples include “I” and “we.”
7. BE CONSISTENT
Consistent punctuation, verb tense, dates, and spacing gives your resume a neat, organized appearance.
8. USE BULLETS TO LIST YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
Bullets help draw the reader’s eye down the page and convey that your resume is organized and concise. Begin each bullet with an action verb.
9. PERSONAL INFORMATION IS IRRELEVANT
This includes religious affiliation, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, and age. GUIDE TO WRITING YOUR SCHOLARSHIP RESUME Copyright @2014 Kaplan Higher Education, LLC. All rights reserved.
