Office of Merit Scholarships is offering two workshops next week to help students prepare to write their personal statements and CV’s! We invite students who are thinking about upcoming graduate school applications to join as well!

Personal Statement Writing | Monday, April 19 | 4 pm | Join on Zoom

Join a UW fellowships advisor to talk about the Personal Statement and to grow more confident in approaching and drafting your personal statement. We’ll share tools, insights, and ideas for you to use as you develop your statements for scholarships, fellowships, summer research and other academic programs. Be ready to participate in a few writing exercises to help get you started.

 Showcase your engagement: CV & Resume Workshop | Wednesday, April 21 | 4 pm | Join on Zoom

Scholarships, Fellowships & Academic Programs look for students who are active and engaged. Use your scholarship resume, CV or activities sheet to highlight experiences that are meaningful to you and to show how you spend your time.
