Graduate College Events for Graduate Students & Postdocs

Many funding agencies require a personal statement in addition to an applicant’s research proposal. Why?! What on earth are you supposed to talk about? If these questions have induced writer’s block, this workshop is for you. We will assess the range of personal statement prompts you may encounter and distill their shared essence. Participants will learn the qualities of a compelling statement and practice writing techniques to arrive at a complete first draft.

There is no registration required for this in-person workshop to be held at the Graduate College (507 E. Green St) in the Multipurpose Room (202).
