The information you provide in your AfterCollege profile is used as criteria to select the scholarship recipient. All profile content may be considered, but we're primarily looking for a succinct, but impactful, resume-style personal statement that describes who you are and the value that you bring in an academic and/or professional context.

 

** In your personal statement, please briefly describe how being part of an underrepresented group has uniquely impacted the experience you've had in your field. You may also mention any diversity student groups that you participate in. **
