How to prepare for winning LL.M scholarship


Hello, guys!
My question may, prima fascie, sound a little bit odd, but still:
What kind of achievements am I expected to have, in order to win a LL.M scholarship? It seems to me, that simple high gpa is not enough, as any student, who wants to study for free will have it.
Talking about moot courts, it is generally possible to take part in prestigious one only once a year, so at the end of 4 years of undergraduate degree it will be 3-4 participatings.
What else may be important? Writing scientific articles and taking part in conferences? The thing is they are not by themselves an achievments.
Community service? As I understand it is essential for USA, and only as a additional point.
Serious professional achievements seems to be impossible for a dude, who has just completed a LL.B.
Then by which criterias the winner of the LL.M scholarship is chosen?
