How will my transcript be evaluated by a scholarship agency?

Certainly it is true that “A” students tend to get scholarships.  But it is important to remember that many external scholarship agencies use grades as just one criterion when assessing you for scholarships:  research experience, job experience, and evidence of communication, leadership and interpersonal skills are all important components, particularly for the most prestigious scholarships.  If applying for a major scholarship, you should carefully review the instructions from the scholarship agency, and if necessary contact them directly if you have questions.
