Scholarships are an important tool that makes college more accessible and affordable. They give students equal access to a good education and reduce the costs that come with it. Financial assistance is a necessity for most students, especially those who plan to continue their education past the undergraduate level. Most of these scholarships require applicants to write an essay and often times, you’re competing with thousands of other students hoping to receive the same grant.
