DescriptionPersonal statements/statements of purpose are an opportunity to stand out from the applicant pool, address any concerns on your academic record (transcripts or graduate admissions exam scores), and detail how you have prepared for graduate studies. This workshop will provide best practices to writing your personal statement/statement of purpose for graduate applications, summer research opportunities, and or funding applications. The workshop is appropriate for students applying to any discipline but will focus on those in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and will provide writing strategies, example format, key language, and pitfalls to avoid.
