Refining Your PhD Application Statement of Purpose (SOP)

ELI Fall 2020 Undergraduate and Graduate Workshop Series
Thursday, October 1, 2020
8:00-9:30 AM
Off Campus Location
(For seniors and graduate students applying to PhD programs)

A strong Statement of Purpose is a key component of a successful PhD application. Are you trying to figure out how to organize and narrow down all that you might write in your Statement of Purpose (SOP)? How does an SOP differ from a Personal Statement? We will explore organizational strategies for your SOP and how to find the words to articulate why you are a great match for the program(s) you are applying to.

Bring a list of ideas, a draft outline, or a draft SOP to work on during the workshop. Please come prepared to participate actively in small group discussions.
