The problem in this is the phrase 'for a scholar community.' 'Scholar' is a noun, but this needs to be the adjective form 'scholarly'. 'Makes' should be 'sets', as in 'sets apart' or 'apart' could be changed to 'different'.

 

What sets an academic essay apart from other kinds of writing is that it is written for a scholarly community.
