Who, what, where, when and why do I need to know about personal statements? In almost every scholarship or fellowship application (not to mention graduate school applications or other opportunities!) you will need to craft a personal statement. This is a unique type of essay that may differ from a traditional response paper. The personal statement is your chance to shine. Show your audience who you are and what your individual story is! This interactive workshop will guide students through all the do's and don't's of crafting your personal statement, all the best strategies for writing structure, revision, editing, and staying under word limits! Even if you have written personal statements in the past, join us for this chance to be refreshed on the art of personal statement writing. All students are encouraged to attend!
