WAWS Personal Statement Workshop

Weil Family Foundation and Price Philanthropies host Personal Statement Workshop for WAWS Students

On Tuesday, January 17th, Words Alive Westreich Scholarship (WAWS) Students met with community partners from the Weil Family Foundation and Price Philanthropies to work on writing their personal statements.

Personal statements are an important piece of writing that help students identify their role in the world, and writing a personal statement is often a requirement on college applications. During the workshop, students learned how developing a personal statement could help them as they continue their education, apply for scholarships, and begin their career.

Thank you to our partners for helping facilitate this workshop for our WAWS Students. Words Alive offers monthly workshops through the WAWS Program to help support the transition from high school to college, university, and career life.
