The way you format your cv/Resume will affect your chances of being selected. These are the number of ways that it can affect your chances.
(i). Inability of the selection committee to capture relevant things in your cv or your resume.
When the relevant information are hidden or tiny enough to been easily seen in your CV, the selection committee may skip such information because of the volume of application that need to be looked into and processed. It’s not always easy. We have been Privileged to sort out Scholarship application and we were overwhelmed by the volume of application and work load.
Hundreds to Thousands of Scholarship applications are received to each Scholarship opportunity that is opened. So next time you want to apply for Scholarship, review your CV and make a proper formatting to clearly and briefly show the relevant information.
(ii). Inability of the the selection committee to understand your cv.
Sometimes they way your cv or resume is disorganized can derail your chances. We have said above, they are large volume of applications to sort and if your cv is not well arranged to make it easy for the selection committee to easily understand the format and the arrangement, your chances of been selected will be completely limited.
So you are encouraged that, if in any case the Scholarship offerors specify format of CV that should be attached to the Scholarship application, make sure you strictly obey and follow that format.
2. Send transcript and conclude application at the earliest possible time.
some people never considered this as a factor that would affect their application one way or the other. Instead in their applications, they upload required documents one by one, after several days looking at the deadline is not reached yet and believing that, they application procedures specified that applicants can upload required documents anytime provided it’s uploaded within application time line.
When applying for Scholarship, your seriousness matters a lot and when you are serious, it shows on the other side. They way you carried your application will reflect its seriousness on the side of the offeror. And such would be treated with seriousness by selection committee.
During the application period, applications are being sent and received on they other side. And there’s this thing called, first come first serve. When you begin your Scholarship application, the progress is being recorded if not concluded at once. And it’s only when you complete your application with all required documents that your application will be processed.
While you are waiting and delaying because deadline is still far, hundreds of applications have been received. There is as you should know, numbers that are required for the Scholarship. When that number is reached, any other application that comes in including yours if not sent on time will not be processed.

1. Here is the number. First among the secrets that you must take very seriously.
It is your background and how you relate it to your statement of purpose.
This is the number one top secret. This is the final say in your Scholarship application no matter the Scholarship goals set by the person that are offering the Scholarship to students. We said, it’s your background and how you are able to relate your background with your statement of purpose. This has never been leaked else. So how exactly do we mean here ?
There are two relevant things put together here. First is your background, second is your statement of purpose. Please note that this statement of purpose may be called something else by different Universities. It may be called Cover Letter, or a Short Note, Motivation Letter etc., Whatever it’s called. It means one and same thing.
The statement of purpose give applicants an opportunity to write down in clear details why the applicants should be given the Scholarship to study and not hundreds others.
So you see this finalizes your selection. There is a lot of weight, point attacked to your statement of purpose or Motivation Letter or what your prospective University chooses to call it.
Nothing less than 67 point is attached to statement of purpose in Scholarship application. Some Scholarship do rely only on statement of purpose for selection, nothing more. So imagine how strong it must be to able to climb above all other statement in the contest.
Let us make something clearer to you.
If you have come from a poor background and you were able to link your statement of purpose with your background you are most likely to win the Scholarship. Most of the Scholarship would want to know whether, even though you are coming from a poor background, do you have an intention and desire to better your immediate society/your poor environment by utilizing the Scholarship opportunity or you just needed the Scholarship to be your escape route.
