Essay untuk aplikasi beasiswa pada dasarnya adalah penjelasan yang cukup panjang lebar mengenai diri kita pribadi. Di dalam essay biasanya terdapat beberapa unsur seperti : Latar belakang pendidikan dan latar belakang keluarga, kemudian juga alasan dan motivasi mengikuti program beasiswa yang ditawarkan, kelebihan yang kita miliki, alasan mengapa kita pantas untuk mendapatkan beasiswa tersebut.
Utarakan semuanya dalam bahasa yang ringan dan tidak berlebihan, sampaikan segala sesuatunya dengan sederhana dan apa adanya. Namun sesekali tetap selipkan mengapa anda unik, mengapa anda berbeda, dan mengapa anda pantas untuk mendapatkan beasiswa tersebut. Usahakan setiap elemen yang ada di essay anda dapat mendukung anda dan bidang jurusan yang anda pilih, oleh karena itu berhati-hatilah dengan essay yang akan anda tulis. Akan sangat bagus jika misalnya anda berkonsultasi lebih dulu dengan guru-guru anda untuk memeriksa essay yang anda buat.
