Personal Statement Writing for Scholarships

Your personal statement is the one thing that allows you to stand out amongst the crowd of other scholarship applicants.

In this SOS workshop we will use various writing prompts which will help you to build the foundation of writing a powerful scholarship essay that sets you apart. We will also share insight into what scholarship selection committees look for when they review applications and essays.

You will walk away from this workshop with a solid set of writings which you can use to craft a strong personal statement for any scholarship you choose to apply for.
