Fulbright Scholarship Personal Statement Letter
This here is a dense scheme that describes what is a Fulbright Personal Statement Letter. Some information were gathered online and some were structured from my personal experience and experiences of other Fulbright Fellows. Even though the information given are not exhaustive, the scheme should give you some idea on how to write a personal statement letter.
To summarize the most important points:
- A Personal Statement is not a CV and should not repeat data from your application. It should be a supplement which gives the reviewer a picture of you as a person instead of just listing facts. After the reviewer reads it he should be eager to meet you in person!
- Personal Statements are read quick and in bulk. Yours should be a pleasure to read. Also, you should have it proofread by a friend (preferably a native speaker) so there are no language mistakes.
- Identify a couple of points and develop them. It is advisable to use an anecdote from your life that introduces you.
