The one seated in the middle, directly opposite me, is the dean of Admissions, Dr. The other 2 interviewers were professors (but I did not take note of their names or faculty, was too nervous haha).
What I did was, I was polite but most of the time, I was just being myself.
On the day itself, you must bring a photograph of yourself and a portfolio of your transcript(s), certificates and etc.
It would also be better if you bring a hard copy of your own CV for your own reference.
It is an opportunity to demonstrate to the selection committee that you are a well-rounded individual, that you are more than your GPA, that you are a strong writer, and it gives you a chance to talk about your experiences and qualifications in greater detail than what appears on your resume or transcripts.
Many schools and other organizations that give out scholarships will give you a "prompt" or a question which the essay is supposed to address." More than likely, they want to get a better idea of who you are—not only what types of books you like but also what motivates you and what sorts of stories or topics interest you.They may also be interested in getting a sense for how promising a student you are based on the type of book you choose and what you have to say about it.If done properly, you will very rarely be able to submit the same application to multiple awards – it is not a one-size-fits-all; most essays will need to be tweaked or completely altered to show the reader that you are deserving of the award above and beyond any of the other participant who also applied.Your essay is the key to your scholarship application.Read the question or prompt carefully and try to "read between the lines." For example, the prompt you are to answer might be, "Describe a book that made a lasting impression on you and your life and why?" Ask yourself, "Are they really interested in my literary preferences or is there something more to this question?Writing a scholarship essay can be very difficult – especially if you want to do it well.Your essay will need to wow the reader, and speak directly to the goals of that organization, as well as the objectives of that award.For NTU applicants, after you complete your application online, you can apply for the scholarship using a separate online form.It would be good to ask one of your lecturers/teachers to prepare an Appraisal Letter for you, because after you have completed your scholarship application, you can ask your lecturer/teacher to submit his/her appraisal using the Appraisal Form online with your application number and details.
