Thank you for making the decision to apply for scholarships at Modesto Junior College! We appreciate your interest.
The most important aspect of the entire application is the essay. This is your story. We don't want a paragraph or a sentence or two, but a real college-level essay with an introduction, two or three supporting paragraphs and a conclusion.
Consider your essay to be a one-on-one meeting with the scholarship donor. Introduce yourself, sharing a little about you and your background. What are the obstacles in life (if any) that you overcame to get to this point in your journey? What is your major? Why did you select this major and why are you passionate about it? Many people select their major based on life experience so please tell us about that. And, finally, what are your future goals and plans as they pertain to this major? Where do you see yourself in the future? Some of the best essays are those that connect us to the real you.
After writing your essay it is imperative that you proof read for mistakes and make sure your major and where you are going with it is clearly stated. Write thoughtfully and be genuine. Allow the real you and the passion for your future to shine through.
Recommendations are also important to the overall score of your application. All applicants are required to submit at least one recommendation from an instructor. When we review your academic transcript and see that you've done well in the classes that pertain to your major, we hope to see at least one or two recommendations from those instructors. Keep in mind that instructor recommendations carry the most points. Be mindful to ask the instructor in advance for his/her endorsement. Let them know ahead of time that he or she will receive an email request for an online endorsement directly from your Awardspring scholarship application. Recommendations from family, friends and co-workers are not acceptable. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure two recommendations are complete before the January 31, 2019 deadline. No exceptions!
