Develop your undergraduate CV/Resume for use in scholarship, fellowship, research opportunities, and 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!
Please RSVP to attend HERE.
Personal Statement Writing Workshops:
Nov. 13, 2012, 4:30-5:20pm, MGH 171
Nov. 29, 2012, 3:30-4:20pm, MGH 171
The Personal Statement is an important part of an application package. Applying for scholarships, internships, 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.
Please RSVP to attend any of the sessions HERE.

The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship was created by the Washington State Legislature in 2011 to address rising tuition at Washington colleges and universities. It is a public-private partnership funded initially with $5 million from the state of Washington. Boeing and Microsoft have committed $50 million combined. The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship helps low- and middle-income Washington State residents earn first bachelor’s degrees in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and health care.
This scholarship will provide help to students in families who earn up to 125% of the median family income attain bachelor’s degrees in high employer demand fields including science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care. This expands college financial aid to a greater group of young people beyond the current state need grant which only reaches families with 70% of the median family income.
The application period is March 1 through April 16, 2012. Three thousand students will be selected and awards will be made for the 2012-13 academic year. High school seniors through college seniors who plan to attend colleges and universities in Washington State for the entire 2012-13 academic year are eligible to apply. A student must be a Washington State resident, have a 2.75 GPA or higher and have completed a 2012-2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to submit an application. These scholarships are $1,000 per year which will be renewable for up to five years for entering college freshmen. Renewal of the scholarship will depend on class standing and meeting renewal criteria.
