How do I refer to a scholarship competition or a admission course competition? Competition doesn’t seem the right word

In Portuguese I would say “concurso” and not “competição” which has the same meaning as competition in English. In English it seems off to say competition because a competition is more direct, like a sports competition.


Scholarship competition or scholarship contest are used a lot. You’re right, competition does sound more intense, like a sports event, but the basic idea is still right. The students are competing to see who wins the scholarship.
