Hello @Jason! Scholarship interviews typically aim to understand your academic achievements, personal qualities, goals, and reasons for applying.
Here are some common questions you might encounter:

  1. Can you tell us about yourself and your background?
  2. What inspired you to apply for this scholarship?
  3. How do you plan to use this scholarship if you receive it?
  4. What are your short-term and long-term academic or career goals?
  5. Can you share a challenging academic or personal experience you’ve overcome?
  6. How do you demonstrate leadership and involvement in your community or school?
  7. What sets you apart from other applicants?
  8. How do you manage your time and prioritize your commitments?
  9. Can you discuss a book, project, or experience that has had a significant impact on you?
  10. How do you envision contributing to society in the future?

Remember to be authentic and showcase your strengths and passions. Good luck with your interview tomorrow!
