I applied for CU-Boulder and had to apply with two essays. They gave me access to their scholarship portal after I applied, and one of my two essays fits one of the school scholarship prompts. Is it okay to reuse that essay even though I used it in my application? Will the same people be reading it?
You shouldn’t as some consider your entire file for scholarships.
As stated, oftentimes if the scholarship is through the school the review panel may receive your school application. Better to write something new!
My daughter asked these question to admissions and the scholarship group at more than one school. She never truly reused, but in one case, she was comfortable using a version of the essay- and, yes, she got the $$.
