Your resume is not the place to be modest
. You want to show potential employers that you are capable, driven, and backed by a track record of success. To this end, you should showcase your accomplishments—both academic and professional. If you have been awarded a scholarship, you should absolutely include this on your resume, but you might wonder whether it belongs in the education or work experience section. This is ultimately a matter of personal judgment. You should always be sure that the most important aspects of your resume—typically your professional experience—are the most visible. If your scholarship entailed work experience, it would fit in this section, but if you received it with no related experience, it should be placed elsewhere on your resume. You might consider including a new section entirely for academic honors. In this case, you can include scholarships, awards, and other accomplishments without muddying up the experience section with unrelated information. Regardless of where you put information on academic accomplishments, though, you should be sure to find room for them on your resume.
