I purchased this book for WCHS: The Writing Center. It is an excellent resource for students and staff with dependents heading off to college. The examples of essays and responses are particularly helpful.

I use parts of this book, in a scholarship workshop that I conduct at my workplace. It has very good ideas, and some good scholarship sites. It is worth every penny

The key is getting your kids to actually do it. We have found that a number of schools and general scholarships have dropped the essays, however most school's Honor Programs require essays and it can be the tipping point for someone who is borderline in either grades or scores. My daughter was admitted into ASU's Honors program and her grades were not stellar but her ACT scores were. Because she didn't entirely meet the basic requirements she felt she wouldn't be given a look but we encouraged her to apply and the ideas she got from this book helped her plan out a thoughtful essay. Because they were willing to take a chance on her based on her essay, she felt motivated to achieve and completed her freshman year with a 3.8.

The authors are publishing virtually identical books under different titles. For instance, "How to Write a Winning Scholarship Essay" and "Money-Winning Scholarship Essays and Interviews" are virtually identical (I could find only some minor differences in chapter 4). These two books have completely different covers. Beware: There may be other duplicated titles.
