Q:

How are scholarship award certificates worded?

A:

Scholarship certificates can be presented in many different styles, but their wording generally follows a common scheme where the top will say "Certificate of Scholarship," "Scholarship Award" or "Certificate of Award." There usually will be text for the organization giving the certificate, an area where the recipient's name will be listed and space for the name of the school or the details of the scholarship or form of achievement.

There are many different kinds of scholarship awards and an array of styles that can be designed for certificates. Some templates can be downloaded online and others can be custom designed using a word processor or some type of layout design program.

Most scholarship certificates will have basic information: the name of the organization giving the award, the name of the award, the name of the recipient, the name of the school and sometimes the date or a denomination of money, when applicable. the title of "Certificate of Scholarship" or some other synonymous phrase is generally rendered in a large font at the very top. The recipient's name will generally be in the very middle. Some scholarships may have a small paragraph of text describing what the award is for or what it represents. Smaller details of the design and content of a certificate depend on the nature of the award being given.
