from diverse backgrounds and students who have worked with diverse groups.
You must submit a Personal Statement.
Applications will be reviewed with consideration of students’ educational, socio-economic disadvantaged- or disability-related background and/or culturally varied experiences
or working with such groups.
The statement should address the ways those experiences have affected the development of your special interests, career plans, future goals, and how you may have overcome
We also use the statement when applying on behalf of students for some funding opportunities.
