I am currently applying to PhD programs in Canada, and one of the schools that I am applying to has asked applicants to use a template CV.
As part of the "Awards" section, the template asks applicants to highlight the "competition" involved with each award. I was very aggressive in applying to awards this year and managed to win 6 in about 10 months. However, after contacting the award administrators, I found out that some of the awards I won hardly had any competition. For instance, one of my awards valued at $6,000 has a 97% success rate; another valued at $500 to develop a trainee-led teaching initiative had only 4 applicants, each of which got the award.
I wondered if there is an interesting way of framing the awards I won this year without them coming off as worthless. Any advice would be sincerely appreciated!
