  1. Be specific.
    Poor example: My education goal is to get my certificate start my career.
    Good example: My education goal is to get my CNC Machining Certificate from RVC along with my NIMS certificates and work for one of the major manufacturing companies in the Rockford area.
  1. Be personal.
    Poor example: Receiving an RVC Foundation scholarship would mean a lot to me because I have a lot of bills to pay and I want to buy a new car. (Remember, scholarships cover tuition, fees and books. Not personal expenses.)
    Good example: Receiving an RVC Foundation scholarship would mean a lot to me because there would be confirmation that someone believes I can be successful. I tried the traditional college route which didn’t work out for me. However, after completing the first two months of the CNC Machining program, I know I can become the CNC technician I want to be. Your belief in my success is just the push I need to continue to work hard in all of my classes.
