Preparing for Graduate School Applications -- Spring Workshop Series

Are you an undergrad planning to apply for grad school this fall? Make the application process less stressful--get a head start on your application materials now. This series of workshops will help you to prepare four of the critical pieces of your application process: finding funding, writing a strong curriculum vitae and personal statement, and getting strong letters of recommendation.

Scholarships 201: Searching & Applying for Graduate Funding as an Undergrad
This session will include information on discipline specific scholarships, national funding opportunities, scholarship search sites, and tips to develop competitive applications. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/245.
Monday, April 13, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171
Thursday, April 16, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171

Curriculum Vitae Writing Workshop
Develop your undergraduate CV for use in graduate school applications! A Curriculum Vitae ("CV" or "vitae") is a comprehensive, biographical statement emphasizing your professional qualifications and activities. A CV is similar to a resume, but an advantage to the CV format is the significant freedom to choose the headings and categories for your information and the strength reflected in their arrangement. Bring a working draft, such as an existing resume, and a list of activities including: Honors, Awards & Prizes received no longer than 5 years ago, Academic and Research Activities, Community Service Involvement, Work History, and Activities outside of the Academic Environment. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards staff to develop and strengthen a draft of your CV! RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/237.
Tuesday, April 14, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171
Thursday, April 23, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171

Personal Statement Writing Workshop
The Personal Statement is an important part of an application package. Applying for scholarships and graduate/professional programs often requires a personal statement or application letter. This type of writing requires you to outline your strengths confidently and concisely, which can be challenging. Personal Statement Workshops will provide students with essential information to develop an understanding of not only writing about their interests, eligibility and suitability for applications, but also to learn how their statements provide evidence of their achievements that aren’t reflected in other parts of an application. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/236.
Monday, April 20, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171
Wednesday, April 29, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171

Getting Great Recommendation Letters Workshop
This workshop will help you plan ahead for developing strong relationships with faculty and other mentors, asking for letters of recommendation, and preparing your recommenders to write you stellar letters. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/289.
Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 4:30-5:30pm, MGH 171
Wednesday, May 6, 2015, 12:30-1:30pm, MGH 171
