Do all colleges give scholarships for essays? Even colleges with optional essays?
You should check with the schools to which you are applying websites. They should have the information on there. Actually, I've never heard of a school giving a scholarship for a good essay or anything...
the scholarships aren't given out just because of your essays
they are given to you as a whole. I'm guessing you're referring to merit aids?
that is based on your grades and essays and things like that put together.
Yeah, you have to ask for a list of the scholarships that the school offers, and then try for some that you think you can win. All schools are different.
no colleges give any scholarship only by the essay. you can searching on the internet or on the college website. they have some rules and regulations. even a non college scholarship will consider by some aspects.
