Fellowship essay [#permalink]

New post 18 Jan 2006, 08:07

I`m writing an essay to be considered for the school`s merit fellowship. This essay is related to 2 key thiings:
- why you think you should be considered for a Fellowship;
- how receiving a Fellowship will impact your ability to give back to the school`s community.
First question is very easy; it matches with some aspects of admission essays, that I already wrote. But thу second question confuses me... What should I write here about?
I can barely find a relationship between the receiving fellowship and my "ability to give back...", mainly since I gonna do my very best anyways.
Basic idea, that I have - if you give me money, I will have to borrow less and I will think less about my financial burden, thus concentrating more on study... But it is not too impressive for me.
I have also been admitted by several other school and I`m not sure whether I should mention this fact or not.

So, do you have any ideas how to make my essay more persuasive, and what particular things should I emphasize?

Thanks and regards!

I wouldn't bother mentioning the other schools. Depending on the school, the admissions office probably won't be impressed by an argument that says "If you give me money, I'll come."

What else do you know about the fellowship? Does it g ive you access to certain alumni or professors? Often these programs will involve more than money. If it gives you these special opportunities, focus on those more than the money.
