Scholarship Essay Example
Topic: How would you use a scholarship for research in Never Never Land?
As a child, I spent many summers in a land far, far away and enjoyed my expericenes there with my grandfather and grandmother in the castle. Its been many years, and since than I have studied geography as a profession. Now, as a personnel choice, I'd like to, through serious study of never never land, extensive reading of local authors, interviews with forest fairies, and observations of the lost boys, further my education.
My studies have included an internship in the land of Honnalee, where I also volunteered to work helping refugees fleeing the devastation caused by the dragon. I spent 3 hours weekly working at there shelter, providing assistance in locating they're family members. I found this work edifying. I helped people, and learned about the indigenous population and the surrounding land. I consider the time I spent living by the sea some of my most valuable.
In addition, to my volunteer work, with the Honnalee Oceanside Temporary Dragon Operation Growth and Guidance for Emigration of Refugees (or HOTDOGGER), me and my roommate, spent every Saturday, working, at the soup kitchen. And boy, do they cook good, literally! I'm sure your going to love it.
Geography offers many avenues for education, and has many other fields that imbue it with more value that geography is about. The understanding of what makes up a locale is what geography education is for. By utilizing local manuscripts, tribal information, and long term study, prudent land managers can assess the best direction to guide a country into. The fruits or benefits of good geography education provide a foundation for all to grow with. In reality, a strong education in this subject can lift all other subject that touch it or come nearby to.
There are so many I could come up with. For example, mathematics. By studying geography, one must understand scaling, altitude, longitude and latitude. Learning about geography will definatley effect you're other subjects.
In conclusion and to wrap up, finally I have a strong interest in becoming a professional in the real world of geography. I plan to work in cartography and archeological geography. My first specific aim will be to reunite my friend Smee with his long lost family and fortune, which is being held in an escrow account. He only need a small sum of money to release the millions held there on his behalf according to his email. I also plan to write a book tracing the voyages of Captain Hook in Never Never Land.
At present, I will not complete my second goal without this scholarship and the opportunity to, and I hope it will be awarded to me for the coming school year in order to begin my research and start writing, come to Never Never Land for the study of geography at Hana Mana Ganda University at the Mermaids Lagoon Campus, through the Snow White Memorial Scholarship Fund. But most importantly, it means Smee can finally find his family, and that the world will never, never forget Captain Hook and his contribution to watch winding technology and alligator rescue.
Do Not Make These Mistakes in Your Scholarship Essay!
This essay will not win a scholarship! It is pitiful, really. If you need money for college, write better than this. You can find over two dozen errors of word use, spelling, grammar, convention, and a surprise or two. Sadly, it is also fictional. Even if I was eloquent in describing my weekend volunteer activities, HOTDOGGER does not exist.
