WR 105 - Writing for Scholarships
This course functions as a support system, encouraging you to develop your ideas and writing skills beyond the classroom. First, you will learn to present your self-inquiry in the form of effective scholarship essays. Then, you will include these essays in a scholarship application to the Oregon Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) and, optionally, another scholarship application of your choice. This course focuses on prewriting, descriptive writing, organizational strategies, sentence fluency, concision, and, importantly, revision. It is not uncommon for students to rewrite their essays multiple times after starting over. We will look at scholarship essays from former WR 105 students who have earned scholarships, to define what works and to employ working techniques in current assignments. We will collaborate and consider each essay together, to determine how to communicate your personal experiences such that they inspire you and touch the lives of others. NOTE: This two-credit writing course will not count toward a WR 115/115W, 121, 122, 123 or 227 writing course.
