A focus on your academic studies and overall performance is one of the best ways to improve your chances of winning the TYLENOL Future Care Scholarship 2020 as an undergraduate or graduate student. If you’re a high achiever, you’re going to be a strong applicant not just for the TYLENOL Scholarship Program but also for other merit-based scholarships, graduate programs and even future jobs.
In one of your essays, if you have experienced any hardships or extenuating circumstances that have negatively affected your GPA, come up with a thoughtful way to explain those situations. This will be particularly effective if you frame a suffering as a motivating factor in your career path.
For example, if you have experienced an illness or injury that has prevented you from performing academically at your best, explain how that challenge consequently influenced your career choices.
Community Involvement & Volunteer Service
It’s clear that the best applicants will be those devoted solely to service — that is, helping others — as specialists or providers in professional healthcare. Before you actually start a health care career, one way to focus your dedication to service is to engage in the relevant volunteer work and/or community involvement.
If you are applying for medical school or have already applied for it, chances are you have some volunteer experience related to health care on your resume.
All applicants will be required to submit two 300-word essays and one 100-word essay that focuses on their career objectives. Past Tylenol Future Care Scholarship winners have been able to articulate by compelling, logical narratives why and how they became interested in health care.
You’ll have your own reasons to pursue medical education and a career. As long as you’re genuine in your three essays, you’ll find yourself to be likable and authentic.
Here are some tips for approaching your essays: how to write a good scholarship essay.
