Personal Statement Writing Workshop for Nationally Competitive Awards

Date and Time

Friday, April 5, 2013
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM


  • Honors College » 114 - Computer Lab



What Will I Learn?
·      You will learn strategies on how to write strong personal statements and                statements of purpose that will engage a selection committee’s attention and make you stand out from the crowd!
Why Is It Important?
·       Most scholarships and fellowships       require you to write a personal statement or statement of purpose. They are        designed to give the selection committee a sense of who you are and how closely your goals and strengths match the ideals of a specific award, so they are a crucial part of your application. 
What Should I Bring?
A draft of your statement, if you have one. Writing consultants will be available to help you generate and develop ideas for your statement throughout this
hands-on workshop.
