    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win leadership scholarships

    As with any type of scholarship, it’s important to put your best foot forward when writing an essay for a leadership scholarship. This is your chance to show scholarship committees what you bring to the table. You should write about your past leadership experiences, what being a leader means to you, and how you plan to evolve as a leader moving forward. And remember to let your personality shine through! Scholarship committees review huge amounts of applications, so it’s important to write something that stands out. 

    Fortunately, we have a multitude of resources designed to help you do just that! These include guides on how to write a winning essay, how to write an essay about yourself, and how to start an essay and how to end an essay. Essays are one of the most important parts of your scholarship application, so give them the time and attention they deserve!

    For more advice on winning scholarships, check out our ultimate guide to finding and winning scholarships. And don’t forget about local scholarships, either.

    How do you show leadership for scholarships?

    Leadership can show many forms. It could be seen in involvement in your community through service, or leadership positions in school clubs or extracurriculars.

However, it is never a bad bet to find some organizations and take on some responsibility at them.
