When applying for fellowships, you may be asked to provide a personal statement, professional goals statement, or something similar. This gives you an opportunity to elaborate on and offer context for information contained in other documents you submit. Karen Ruhleder, Assistant Director of External Fellowships, offers some strategies for approaching these kinds of statements. This workshop will include discussion of successful examples from a variety of fellowship competitions.
