I want to know about national merit essay word count. I am writing a scholarship essay for the first time in my life. This essay is for national merit scholarship. I have finished almost of the essay. I have confusion with the word count of the essay. It only said no more than two pages. Now I have around 500 words. Is that enough for a scholarship essay? I heard that if the essay is short, then they will consider it as incomplete. Should I add more to this essay or keep the length? Thanks
My daughter took this advice from you when she wrote her National Merit essay. It began “My mother, bloody axe in her hand, prepared for her twelfth victim.” It was about chicken butchering in our rural community. She didn’t get the scholarship, but the essay did win her a national gold medal from the Scholastic Arts and Writing contest!

I don't think there is some importance for a national merit scholarship essay word count. You should write the essay correctly with good points and structure. You need to calm down. The essay for the application essay is no big deal. Just take out the excess and submit. The content of the essay is not a big deal as long as it's coherent and grammatically fine and is ok for the prompt.I think the limit may be a character limit not really a word limit
