Writing an essay as part of the process for applying for a scholarship can be daunting. It may be even more intimidating than writing an essay for a grade. The stakes may be quite high. It is, therefore, essential that such an essay is written with great care, attention to detail, passion, and confidence.

When we talk about scholarly research we mean articles, books, or reports (print or electronic) that are based on original research or experimentation. The scholars being referred to are typically scientists, academics, or other experts in a given field who are often connected with a college, university, or similar institution.
