IN YOUR OWN WORDS, WHY IS RECEIVING THIS SCHOLARSHIP IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Your essay should be 500-800 words.
So far this is what I have:
The interests and choices I have made since I was young, makes it was obvious that engineering has been on my mind. At only four years old, I was asking questions about gravity, wondering why if the earth was round how come people didn't just "fall off the earth." I began thinking on terms of how certain items work, taking things apart just to see the how the mechanics work properly inside. Quickly learning everything possible about the devices, I would assemble them back together. Every now and then I was able to figure out a way to build it better than it was before.
As I took on high school, I was one of ten students selected to attend a program called OSMTech, Oakland Science and Mathematics Academy. This four year curriculum focused on and emphasized the engineering fields directly through math, science, and technology. During my high school years, I was a part of a robotics team that also exemplified the engineering world around me, helping me to understand what engineering really meant to me. As I prepare for college I want to excel into the Mechanical Engineering degree so that I can progress further into my engineering dream.
These days college is becoming more difficult to afford. It is turning out to be a challenge to fund a college education. Scholarships are the best way to keep advancing into this field of engineering. Not only does a scholarship reward with money, but it is prestigious and an honor to receive one. It proves to others that you are one of the best students. It gives recognition and the credit earned through hard work and dedication. I want to be the one who shows this commitment and determination as I progress through an engineering degree.
If awarded this scholarship, I would be able to not only fulfill my own aspirations, but this scholarship will be a gift that keeps on giving. Mechanical Engineers visualize and implement programs and devices that advance our daily life. They are concerned with constructing a better tomorrow, improving the world with each step. When I obtain my degree, I will be able to aid in the creation of an improved society and enhance the world for our children.
I cant think of anything else to include and right now the length is not long enough. Also does this sound good so far or should I change anything? Any help please? Thanks
