The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards is offering several workshops this week and next that will be helpful to undergraduate students preparing to apply for scholarships and other programs. Here’s some more info about each of the workshops they’ll be holding:
Personal Statement Writing Workshop:
Scholarships, summer programs, major admissions and graduate/professional programs often ask applicants to write a personal statement or application letter. This type of writing requires you to outline your ideas, plans and strengths confidently and concisely, which can be challenging. Join us to get started brainstorming, drafting and strategizing how your statement can provide evidence of your interests and achievements that aren’t reflected in other parts of an application.
Thurs., Jan. 31 | 4:00–5:00 p.m. | MGH 171
Scholarship Information for Transfer Students:
Discuss application tips and tricks, as well as information on selected scholarships transfer students need to be aware of early in their UW studies.
