Should I included amount of scholarship money in resume?

Asked by vekteur (107points) March 30th, 2010

When listing my current college, should I include how much money I received for a merit-based scholarship? Or just write “Awarded a merit-based scholarship.”

Don’t write the amount.

And proof-read your resume more carefully than your questions here XD

No, just list it as well as any other merit-based ones you have received.

Does your scholarship have a name? That would be a nice-looking piece of information to provide, if you can find out what it is. Writing the amount of money you received is a bad idea.

I agree with @iphigeneia, list the name of the scholarship(s) you receive for the school you attended. You should list it as “Homer Simpson Scholar” or “Homer Simpson Scholarship recipient”, along with academic societies you belonged to.

I don’t know, but I do think you should have it proofread.
