A successful scholarship search requires that you carefully target your resume and application to stand out from other applicants. Preparing a resume for a scholarship is not significantly different from any other resume that a high school or college student might need.

Resumes are typically one page and include:

  • Your contact information
  • Education: major(s), current GPA, degree expected
  • Awards and honors
  • Experience and activities
  • Additional: ex. Skills, publications, interests
  • Use of action words
