How I won scholarships

TRANSKRIP
Hi, I’m Estefania, and I graduated class of 2018 from UC Berkeley.
Hello I’m Jonasha.
I’m class of 2020, and I attend North Carolina A&T; State University.
I’m Eric.
I graduated in 2018 and I went to the George Washington University.
I think I applied my freshman year to, I applied to maybe 10 scholarships and I got six of them.
Honestly I probably applied for 75 scholarships, and I have been awarded probably 30 or more of those scholarships.
I would say in the end I won about 10 to 15 different scholarships, and collected about $200,000 to $300,000 for college.
When I was applying to scholarships, I had made a college resume of all the extracurriculars that I had done, different sports and academic achievements that I had been awarded, and
that really helped lay out things in a structured form that could easily let me transfer it from one scholarship application to another.
When I was in high school I used just a spreadsheet to keep track of everything I applied for.
But not only what I applied for, but different steps, right?
So when I’d send my teacher recommendation, I would put a check.
When I finished my essays, I’d put a check.
I think keeping track of where you are and also knowing your deadlines, is a really great way to make sure you’re applying not only to as many scholarships as you can but as
efficiently as possible.
I have a planner that I put my entire life in, so whenever there’s a due date, I always just look at my planner to know when the scholarship is due and when that deadline is.
My tips for completing scholarship essays will always be to read the instructions for them.
So, a lot of scholarships have a minimum word count or either a maximum word count.
So you always need to be mindful of that.
I think one thing that people overlook is acceptance rate for scholarships are super deflated.
And what I mean by that, is there’s actually a great number of candidates who apply with too long of a word count of an essay, who apply and miss their teacher recommendation, or forget one component.
Another recommendation I would have is to look on their website and see if there are any previous scholarship winners that have been announced there, and consider reaching out to them.
Ask them what the application process was like, what they think helped them throughout the process, because odds are these students would love to share their experience with
you and um, give you some advice on scholarship applications.
My biggest advice would be not to get discouraged.
You’re going to get as many rejections as you do acceptances, probably even more rejections, and that’s fine.
Sometimes it’s a numbers game.
Keep applying.
Stay proactive.
And make sure that you’re putting yourself out there.
Just because you don’t get one scholarship doesn’t mean that you’re not gonna get the next one.
You just have to keep trying.
And that’s another thing with life.
You can’t just give up because one thing didn’t work out.
You always have to keep going, because at the end of the day, as long as you try your best and you’re getting 1% better, that’s all that matters.

Hi, I’m Estefania, and I graduated class of 2018 from UC Berkeley.
Hi, saya Estefania dan aku lulus dari UC Berkeley, kelas 2018.

Hello I’m Jonasha.
Helo, aku Jonasha.

I’m class of 2020, and I attend North Carolina A&T; State University.
Aku mahasiswi angkatan 2010 dan aku kuliah di North Carolina A&T State University

I’m Eric.
Namaku Eric.

I graduated in 2018 and I went to the George Washington University.
Aku lulus di tahun 2018 dan aku kuliah di George Washington University.

I think I applied my freshman year to, I applied to maybe 10 scholarships and I got six of them.
Sepertinya aku mungkin melamar ke 10 program beasiswa dan aku mendapatkan enam dari itu.

Honestly I probably applied for 75 scholarships, and I have been awarded probably 30 or more of those scholarships.
Sejujurnya aku mungkin melamar untuk 75 beasiswa, dan aku telah menerima mungkin sekitar 30 beasiswa atau lebih.

I would say in the end I won about 10 to 15 different scholarships, and collected about $200,000 to $300,000 for college.
Aku rasa akhirnya aku mendapatkan sekitar 10 hingga 15 beasiswa yang berbeda dan mendapatkan uang beasiswa sekitar 200.000 hingga 300.000 dolar untuk kuliah.

When I was applying to scholarships, I had made a college resume of all the extracurriculars that I had done, different sports and academic achievements that I had been awarded, and that really helped lay out things in a structured form that could easily let me transfer it from one scholarship application to another.
Ketika aku melamar untuk beasiswa, aku membuat resume kuliah yang berisi semua kegiatan ekstrakurikuler yang telah aku lakukan, prestasi olahraga dan akademis yang aku terima, dan itu benar-benar membantuku membuat daftar dalam format yang terstruktur yang memudahkanku untuk memindahkan data dari satu lamaran beasiswa ke beasiswa lainnya.

When I was in high school I used just a spreadsheet to keep track of everything I applied for.
Ketika aku masih di SMA aku hanya menggunakan spreadsheet untuk memonitor semua beasiswa yang aku lamar.

But not only what I applied for, but different steps, right?
Tapi tidak hanya untuk beasiswa yang aku lamar, tapi juga langkah-langkahnya.

So when I’d send my teacher recommendation, I would put a check.
Jadi ketika aku mengirimkan surat rekomendasi guru, aku akan menberikan centang.

When I finished my essays, I’d put a check.
Ketika aku menyelesaikan esaiku, aku memberikan centang.

I think keeping track of where you are and also knowing your deadlines, is a really great way to make sure you’re applying not only to as many scholarships as you can but as efficiently as possible.
Aku pikir memonitor sampai di mana progresmu dan juga mengetahui tenggat waktumu adalah cara yang bagus untuk memastikan kamu tidak hanya melamar ke sebanyak mungkin beasiswa tapi juga secara seefisien mungkin.

I have a planner that I put my entire life in, so whenever there’s a due date, I always just look at my planner to know when the scholarship is due and when that deadline is.
Saya memiliki jurnal perencana di mana aku mencatat seluruh aspek kehidupanku di dalamnya, jadi ketika ada deadline, aku hanya perlu melihat ke jurnalku untuk mengetahui kapan proses lamaran beasiswanya akan berakhir dan kapan deadlinenya.

My tips for completing scholarship essays will always be to read the instructions for them.
Tipsku untuk menyelesaikan esai beasiswa adalaj selalu membaca instruksinya.

So, a lot of scholarships have a minimum word count or either a maximum word count.
Banyak beasiswa yang menerapkan jumlah minimum kata atau jumlah maksimum kata.

So you always need to be mindful of that.
Jadi kamu perlu selalu memperhatikan itu.

I think one thing that people overlook is acceptance rate for scholarships are super deflated.
Satu hal yang banyak dilewatkan orang-orang adalah tingkat penerimaan beasiswa sangat-sangat rendah.

And what I mean by that, is there’s actually a great number of candidates who apply with too long of a word count of an essay, who apply and miss their teacher recommendation, or forget one component.
Maksudnya adalah sebenarnya banyak sekali kandidat yang melamar dengan esai yang jumlah katanya terlalu banyak, tidak menyertakan rekomendasi guru mereka atau lupa salah satu komponen.

Another recommendation I would have is to look on their website and see if there are any previous scholarship winners that have been announced there, and consider reaching out to them.
Rekomendasi saya lainnya adalah melihat website penyedia beasiswa dan melihat apakah ada pemenang beasiswa tahun sebelumnya yang diumumkan di website universitas dan pertimbangkan untuk menghubungi pemenang-pemenang ini.

Ask them what the application process was like, what they think helped them throughout the process, because odds are these students would love to share their experience with you and um, give you some advice on scholarship applications.
Bertanyalah pada mereka bagaimana proses aplikasinya, apa yang menurut mereka membantu mereka selama proses aplikasi karena kemungkinan besar mahasiswa-mahsiswa ini dengan senang hati akan berbagi pengalaman denganmu dan memberiku beberapa nasihat mengenai aplikasi beasiswa.

My biggest advice would be not to get discouraged.
Nasihat terbesar saya adalah jangan mudah patah semangat.

You’re going to get as many rejections as you do acceptances, probably even more rejections, and that’s fine.
Kamu akan menerima banyak penolakan dibandingkan dengan penerimaan, mungkin akan lebih banyak penolakan, tapi itu wajar saja.

Sometimes it’s a numbers game.
Kadang-kadang ini adalah permainan angka.

Keep applying.
Teruslah melamar.

Stay proactive.
Tetaplah proaktif.

And make sure that you’re putting yourself out there.
Dan pastikan kamu berjuang dengan maksimal.

Just because you don’t get one scholarship doesn’t mean that you’re not gonna get the next one.
Hanya karena kamu tidak mendapatkan satu beasiswa bukan berarti kamu tidak akan mendapatkan yang berikutnya.

You just have to keep trying.
Kamu hanya perlu terus mencoba/

And that’s another thing with life.
Itu hanya salah satu aspek kehidupan.

You can’t just give up because one thing didn’t work out.
Kamu tidak bisa menyerah hanya karena satu hal tidak berhasil.

You always have to keep going, because at the end of the day, as long as you try your best and you’re getting 1% better, that’s all that matters.
Kamu harus terus berusaha, karena pada akhirnya, selama kamu memberikan yang terbaik dan menjadi 1% lebih baik, itu yang paling penting.
