Topics Covered:

  • Using AI (Artificial Intelligence) to write scholarship essays – why it’s a bad idea
  • Red flags that scholarship providers look for to detect AI-written essays (strange word choices, lack of personal stories/details, similar phrasing across essays)
  • Potential positive uses of AI for scholarship applications (grammar correction, brainstorming ideas, rephrasing)
  • How scholarship requirements may change due to AI (more personal questions, video essay submissions)
  • Importance of developing your own authentic voice and not relying too heavily on AI

Key Takeaways:

  • Scholarship providers want to hear your unique personal story – AI cannot replicate this
  • Use AI as a tool for brainstorming, grammar checks, etc. but don’t let it write your essays
  • Be prepared for scholarship apps to crack down on AI use and require disclosure
  • Work on developing skills like video editing as more visual components may be required
  • The ethical use of AI writing tools is crucial for long-term success
