Your scholarship interview is a chance to introduce yourself to your selection or review committee and present your proposal personally.  This gives the committee a better sense of who you are and why they should be enthusiastic about your plans. It is also an opportunity to have a great conversation about your ideas and to receive useful feedback from individuals who have a wide range of experiences and expertise.

Everyone gets nervous during interviews, but careful preparation can help you to break through that nervousness and present yourself calmly and confidently, as a competitive candidate for any scholarship program.
