Is there a standard way to format supporting documents for scholarship applications?

Asked by prioritymail (1617 points ) November 11th, 2011

If a scholarship application asks you to respond to some questions in a separate document, is there a standard way to format this document? Just listing the questions with my name at the top doesn’t look formal enough. I think somewhere I should include the name of the scholarship I am applying for and explain what the document is, but I’m not sure how to word this or how to format. Please help!

If the application did not specify any particular formatting, then they probably won’t be too picky. But if you’re still worries about formatting, then I would suggest choosing one of the academic formats (MLA, APA, Chicago, ect) and sticking with that. I work primarily in MLA, and Owl Labs is a great resource for it.

They usually specify the format they want you to use, but yeah if they don’t you usually stick to MLA which is basically used for most English papers.
