Successful scholarship applications

Hi Folks

I estimate that about 95% of international scholarship applications that I see are one paragraph requests for cash that are sent via a gmail, yahoo or hotmail account, with no supporting documentation. I estimate that about 99.99% of these surely must be unsuccessful. This has inspired me to produce a document of what I think a successful scholarship application must look like as a minimum to be short-listed. Applying for a scholarship is a bit like applying for work in a competitive job market. You need to invest a lot of time and carefully match your skills to the specifics of an application. I also suggest complementing your application with a digital presentation that introduces yourself.

Best
Jay
