Tips on writing the essay for ACC scholarships

Don’t panic! Just write a paragraph or two about your education and career goals – why you chose ACC and your plans after graduation. That’s all that is needed.

Getting started:

  1. Write the first draft in a word processor
  2. Consider having someone else read it for content and grammar – ask an instructor or someone from the Learning Lab (overviewlocations)
  3. Copy and paste it into the scholarship application
  4. The essay is done!
