Many students want to apply for scholarship applications, but do not know how to begin writing their personal statement. If you are interested in writing a strong personal statement for a scholarship application, please join us for a fun, creative, and intensive two-day writing workshop. We will focus on a Latino and community-based scholarship application that addresses the following question:

  • What field do you intend to pursue, and how will the Latino community benefit?

Explore ideas and topic sentences for your personal statement through an Arts-Based Civic Dialogue session using the largest indoor mural in the City, El Despertar de las Americas, for inspiration. Learn to correctly and creatively structure a scholarship personal statement.


Friday, April 11, 2014 … 3pm to 5pm at the LARES Study Area SSB 2640

Receive constructive feedback from a scholarship reviewer and UIC staff to improve your personal statement.

Dr. Leonard Ramirez, a member of the Illinois Latino Council on Higher Education (ILACHE), will be our guest speaker.

To attend both events, you must RSVP at dsoria2@uic.edu or 312-996-3356.
