GUIDELINES FOR WRITING A STATEMENT OF PROFESSIONAL GOALS
As part of your application, you must include a one page, double-spaced statement of professional goals that addresses the following points:
- Your professional goals. What are your professional career aspirations? What do you plan to do with your degree when completed? Although you do not have to commit yourself to one career, you are best served by presenting to the scholarship committee as specific an idea as possible about what you intend to do with your degree.
- What background experiences, events, and/or education have influenced your professional goals? You should be able to relate specific experiences, events or educational experiences that have influenced your goals.
