  Creating a Competitive Application
A competitive application is neat, clean, and complete. In order to give yourself a competitive edge, you should type the original application. Typing your application ensures that it will be legible, uniform, and professional in appearance. Before you type on the original application, make draft copies and practice on them to figure out how much space you have for each answer and where to set the margins. When you are ready to transfer the information to the original scholarship application, take your time. Avoid mistakes by typing slowly to avoid using correction fluid.

If you do not have a typewriter, your local library should have a few typewriters for public access. Ask one of your school’s teachers or counselors, if you could use their typewriter to type your scholarship application. If you do not have access to a typewriter, use your best hand writing skills and a black pin, and print legible.

Before you start completing the original application, you should make sure the surfaces where you are going to complete the application is clean. To ensure that the surfaces are clean, wipe them off with a clean wet cloth and then dry it off.

Once your application is complete, you should:
Make sure it is free from stray marks, stains, and wrinkles.
Proofread it to make sure it is free from spelling and grammatical errors.
Have someone else to proofread your application, again.
Make a copy of the completed application for your records.
