Essay Help

Get Help From the UCSB EAP Staff!

Let the UCSB EAP staff help you with your scholarship application essays!  Statistics have shown that students who ask the UCSB EAP staff for help have a better chance of receiving a scholarship than students who do not.  UCSB EAP staff could help you brainstorm ideas and review/edit your essays. 
 
Step 1: Research your scholarship options and attend a Scholarship Application Essay Tips Workshop; see our Events Calendar for dates and times.  Fill out the Scholarship Application Worksheet prior to writing the first draft of your essay.
 
Step 2: Get your essay reviewed by sending your completed Scholarship Application Worksheet and essay draft to eapscholarships@eap.ucsb.edu.  Please be patient - it may take 3-4 days for us to respond to you by email.  Give yourself plenty of time for the revision process.  Essay drafts submitted at the last minute might not be reviewed. Submit additional drafts, if desired.
 
Step 3: Determine if official transcripts or letters of recommendation are required for your scholarship applications. Get these documents ASAP and with plenty of time before the application deadlines. Make sure that any transcripts include your legal name.
 
Step 4: Submit all of your scholarship application materials by their deadlines. Note that some are due by a specific time. Do not wait until the last minute!
