Student's hand about to write

Learn how to write high-impact personal statements and project proposals for scholarship applications.

The Rutgers Learning Centers and Center for Global Education invite you to attend this series of three interactive workshops. The series will teach you how to write high-impact personal statements and strong project proposals for scholarship applications. You will learn about scholarship opportunities, practice persuasive writing skills, strengthen your writing by increasing clarity and organization, and develop a unique voice that will make your essay stand out to reviewers.
You will also have the opportunity to meet with a writing coach during our drop-in writing coaching hours for personalized feedback and assistance each Friday following a workshop.
You may attend as many of the workshops as you like, but they are designed to build from one another, so you will get the most out of coming to all three.
