Brainstorm Common Scholarship Essay Questions - Fastweb

The Delaware Department of Education’s Higher Education Office has released essay prompts to be used for this year’s scholarship applications for state financial aid. Due to a system upgrade, the full application will be released in January.

On the scholarship application, you are asked to respond to three essay prompts.

However you choose to start your essay, don’t throw the prompt back at the reader. There’s nothing more unappealing to scholarship readers than re-reading the question they asked you to answer. It’s unimaginative and a sure fire way to get your application dismissed.


But, the essay shouldn't keep you from applying

The most critical advice for these and any other essays for a nationally competitive scholarship is to ensure that your essays address the prompt/theme and they are proofread prior to submission. Applicants that do not follow these two simple recommendations will compete poorly during the selection process and generally will not be awarded a scholarship. We recommend you compose your essays first in a word processing program and then copy and paste your essays into the text boxes provided in the online application. This will allow you to save your essays and ensure that your information is not lost due to session timeout (approximately 15 minutes of inactivity). Your essay should be composed in paragraph format (not as numbered responses to the questions in the application).
