Hi! I won a scholarship once, so you are in luck, I can give you some suggestions on what worked for me:
Make it very personal. Your introduction should be a clear picture of who you are. The people giving the scholarship may not know you, but you want them to. You can describe yourself in a story and how you came on the path of...( whatever you are applying for). I wanted to be a teacher, so I described my first as experience working with children and how I was so scared, but eventually I knew it was what I wanted to do. Something of that nature may help you.
After that section off the other portions to describe each thing they are asking for:
The closing should explain why you are the best candidate and how you will use the opportunity to continue your goals related to your introduction.
Follow the exact prompt, but be unique and creative within the guidelines.
Good luck to you!
