November 21, 2005New Scholarship Will Help Student Fulfill Dream
Ask University of Guelph student Miranda Johnston how she feels about receiving one of the inaugural William and Nona Heaslip scholarships and she is at a loss for words.
“When I first got an e-mail saying I had received the scholarship, I didn’t know what to do or what to say — I just kept staring at the screen,” she said. “I still don’t know what to say. It’s going to help me out so much. It’s going to change everything.”
Johnston, 25, is in her second year at U of G studying political science. She grew up dreaming of becoming a lawyer, but when she got pregnant at age 17 and decided to raise the baby on her own, she feared her dream would never be fulfilled. But she persevered, completing two college programs before enrolling at U of G with her sights set on attending law school after graduation. Along the way, she’s been raising her daughter, Abigail, now 7.
Today, Johnston was presented with a William and Nona Heaslip Scholarship, which provides $15,000 a year and is renewable for up to three years. She is one of two U of G students receiving the award this fall. The other recipient is John Bouwers, a dairy farmer and father of four from Welland, who is enrolled in the B.Sc.(Agr.) program.
The number of Heaslip scholarships being presented at U of G will increase each year until 2007/2008, when the foundation will fund six renewable scholarships on an ongoing basis. The scholarships are open to undergraduate students who have completed semester two, maintained a minimum 70-per-cent cumulative average and have demonstrated financial need.
“William and Nona Heaslip have made an outstanding commitment to assisting undergraduate students with financial need by establishing these renewable awards,” said president Alastair Summerlee. “Their generous gift will help many talented students reach their full potential.”
William Arthurs Heaslip, a member of the Order of Canada, was chair and CEO of Grafton Group Ltd. the second-largest men’s retail clothing chain in Canada. Nona Macdonald Heaslip’s background as a journalist and television and radio producer led to a career in public relations management in New York and Toronto.
The Heaslips believe in giving back to the community and have supported hospitals, non-profit agencies, and many cultural organizations like the Canadian Opera Company, the Art Gallery of Ontario and Shaw Festival. In addition, they’ve established similar scholarships at six other Canadian universities and colleges.
In addition to the William and Nona Heaslip Scholarships, several other new undergraduate and graduate scholarships were announced during the University-wide undergraduate student awards presentations Nov. 9 and the graduate student awards presentations Nov. 21.
Close to 250 people attended the events, including undergraduate and graduate students who were recognized for their academic achievements and scholastic goals. Award donors, including individuals, families, corporations and organizations, also attended and were thanked for investing in the students’ futures.
The new scholarships announced during the ceremonies are:
• The Edward Stewart Graduate Scholarship in Scottish Studies. Created and endowed by friends and family of the late Edward Stewart, the former deputy minister of education and secretary of cabinet in the Ontario government, the scholarship honours his lifelong interests in higher education, Scottish culture and history.
• The Anna Hovanec and Val Hovanec OGS Funds. Established by the Lupina Foundation of Toronto, the first scholarship honours Foundation chair Margret Hovanec’s mother, Anna. It will support Ontario Graduate Scholarships for students doing research related to women’s health in rural communities. The second scholarship honours her late father, Val, and is directed to graduate students pursuing research in environmental biology, with a preference for recipients studying the impact of agricultural chemicals on farmers’ health.
• Bayer Crop Science OGS Fund. One-time funding for Ontario Graduate Scholarships for students doing research on environmental biology and plant agriculture.
• The Agnes Varis Undergraduate Scholarship in Women’s Studies. A new College of Arts award established by Dr. Agnes Varis, founder and president of Agvar Chemicals, to be presented annually to a student who demonstrates a passion and commitment for advancing education for women.

Do you know what a scholarship is? Yes, you are right. It is a program of funding that allows you to cover some tuition costs of your study and hopefully some of your living costs as well. So, scholarship essays help you obtain that funding and make your life easier.Scholarship Essays

The same goes for the word count and deadline for submission of scholarship essays. However, it is up to you how to develop the topic you are given and how to support the argument you build in a scholarship essay.Scholarship Essay Topics
So, the most often topic for scholarship essays are usually all about the meaning of the scholarship to the applicant, the latter’s reasons to apply for a scholarship, and the effects the scholarship might have on the applicant and the whole world. Whatever the topic is, you have the freedom to adjust it to your own vision and impress the scholarship-providers with the original idea and unusual approach to the scholarship essays writing process.

Often an essay is required when applying to a college or for a specific scholarship. Students should take these essays very seriously. Essays help admissions counselors and scholarship committees make their decision. They can also be a determining factor if a student's academic record is weak in some areas and strong in others.
When writing admissions/scholarships essays, keep in mind:
1. Avoid gimmicks. You want your essay to stand out but not as a stunt.
2. Choose what matters to you. Readers are looking for a glimpse of your personality, but don't get too personal.
3. Be careful using humor. Make sure that if you use humor it's funny and fits the topic.
4. Don't send a blanket essay to every school/scholarship you apply. Be sure you answer the question asked.
5. Write analytically. Let your reader know your thoughts--not just facts.
6. Stick to plain language--don't try to impress with big words.
7. Make sure it is neat.
8. Stick to the requested length. Don't ramble.
9. Be sure you ask several people to proofread your essay. Watch out for spelling and grammar errors.

While the application season itself is winding down, there’s still a lot of admissions work to be done. Even if you haven’t received a single acceptance or rejection, it’s not too early to start thinking about next steps.
One of those next steps is funding. School is already expensive (there’s an early contender for understatement of the year) and costs show no sign of slowing their never-ending rise anytime soon.
Luckily, there are also many opportunities to earn education scholarships out there today. www.fastweb.com is a great resource for students looking for scholarships, as it offers a gigantic searchable database that can help you find scholarships that match your needs and qualifications.
Lots of scholarships ask you to write an essay as part of the application process. In the rest of today’s post, I want to provide three tips that will help you write those scholarship essays.
1. Pay attention to what they’re asking
Just as with any writing assignment, you need to begin your scholarship essay by building a clear understanding of what exactly you’ve been asked to write. Scholarship essay prompts span a broad variety of topics ranging from targeted questions to requests for more general biographies.
When you sit down to write an essay as part of your scholarship application, make sure to give the prompt or instructions careful consideration. Doing so will make the writing process both effective and efficient, since you’ll focus on appropriate content without wasting time on things that are irrelevant.
2. Don’t exaggerate or plagiarize
Scholarship essays are similar to admissions essays in that they can encourage writers to stretch the truth. Because you’re directly competing against others for something, whether admission to a school or a financial award, you try to present yourself in the best light possible.
There’s nothing wrong with focusing on positives and working hard to write well. There is something wrong with exaggerating your accomplishments or credentials or paying someone to write for you. Beyond the moral implications, lying or plagiarizing will ultimately hurt your chances.
The people who read scholarship essays are masters at identifying work that is plagiarized or falsified. If they even suspect that your essay fits one of those criteria, they’ll simply drop you from consideration. Masses of applicants compete fiercely for almost every scholarship out there, the majority of whom are remarkably qualified. If you give them a reason to cut you, they’ll take it since there will still be dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of impressive candidates to choose from.
Finally, exaggeration and plagiarism directly lead to writing that is impersonal and clichéd. Essays like that aren’t going to impress anyone.
3. Save and Reuse your OWN Work
I need to be very careful in explaining what I mean here. As just discussed, plagiarism in admissions, whether for scholarships or applications, is wrong. It’s immoral, causes bad writing, and is increasingly easy to spot.
However, there is nothing wrong with reusing your own work whenever possible. In fact, doing so is one of the hallmarks of a smart applicant. Because you’ll almost certainly apply for more than one scholarship, there’s a good chance that you can write an essay that will work for more than one application. Keep an eye out for such opportunities. You may need to spend some time making small adjustments to the essay so that it fits the new scholarship instructions or prompts, but that’s much less effort than writing an entirely new essay.
So long as the work is 100% your own, there’s no reason you shouldn’t look for new ways to use already-written essays.
Let’s understand that there is no easy and simple way to write an appealing scholarship essay. If one had to gather all the scholarship essays that have ever earned accolades, one would find it challenging to categorize what made the essays same.
Each would agree on an exceptional awareness into the authors past, present and future ambitions, an exclusive style employed by the author alone. The first idea to remember when you pick to write makes the scholarship essay special to you distinguish it, research deep into your urge and drive to learn the subject, and create a reaction that could only communicate to you. It is this individuality that stands out, and that’s unerringly what catches an evaluator’s eye and describes a winner.What is a Scholarship Essay
Writing a scholarship essay to wow the reader can be very challenging especially if you want to do it well. Your essay will need to voice straight to the objectives of that business, as well as the objectives of that accolade. If done appropriately, very rarely you’ll be able to stand up to the same request to multiple accolades; most essays will need to be nipped or completely improved to show the person who reads that you are eligible of the honor above and beyond any of the other contestant.
When you start exploring scholarship prospects, many of the scholarship programs include writing a scholarship worthy essay for which you qualify. Very few courses are based severely on an application form or transcription. Scholarship groups like essays because they are able to get a improved sense of who the aspirants really are from understanding their original writing than from merely looking at a form or seeing a listing of accomplished classes and grades.Scholarship Essay Format
The scholarship essay written by you is the key to your application. It is an opportunity to validate to the selection board that you are an experienced individual, that you are more than your GPA, that you are a strong essayist, and it gives you a chance to talk about your know-hows, capabilities and qualifications in larger detail than what seems on the transcripts. Scholarship Essays should use this formatting lest specified:
Every scholarship provider is looking for a specific student who meets exclusive criteria’s. Take enough time to turn out the essay into something great. Plan a week ahead this will give you enough time to expertise an outline, which can help the essay stay brief and on target. Think of two or three main points you want to make in retort to the essay question, add supporting information under each, and consider a sentence or two of introduction and conclusion. Before you even recognize it, you'll have made the thesis of your essay with the structure, and you won't have to hurry to write it.
State a summary of what you are going to talk about in the essay. If the essay is about you, give a short-lived depiction of your capabilities, experiences, aims, goals, aspirations, family background, etc. Hint on why you want the scholarship. Go into details on one of the topics listed in the paragraph. Intricate on your family, previous experiences, and financial situation, volunteer work, occupation, educational career, future goals, college plans, etc. Conclude the essay with a certainty of why you should be measured for the scholarship; how do your goals match those of the institute, etc.
You will quickly find out that the effort you put into writing your essay signifies the chance to sell yourself to the scholarship board. If you tell your story clearly and convincingly, you just might find yourself getting a congratulatory letter! Get a feel for what scholarship benefactors usually seem to want in an essay and then give it to them.
Creating a consistent, informative and appealing scholarship essay is one of the things you can do to give you the brink you need. The trick lies in giving your best effort, following directions to the letter, and be as effectual as likely. The great thing about scholarship essays is that there is often overlay in the requisite subject matter that you can reutilize them. In fact, you may write just one or two essays that you can submit to several differ ent scholarship benefactors. Every little detail towards a clean and practiced presentation will make an impression on the person reading your essay.
When you start writing the essay, don't forget that the main purpose of the essay is to influence and convince the scholarship source that you're the student they've been considering. Ensure every point you make is exemplified with a specific detail that shows you care about the topic. Don't just sing your own praises about acting rewards; show how the stage helped you triumph over your coyness. Don't mention that you work with disadvantaged kids; tell them how your love for soccer got you into teaching those kids. Putting your inimitable interests and standpoints on the page will go a very long way toward making a memorable essay.
