Guidance and Advice

Create an Academic Resume

Competitive scholarships require an updated academic resume, or curriculum vitae. Your resume should be a reflection of your accomplishments as an undergraduate or graduate student.

• Highlight what makes you unique. Share your credentials in leadership, research, and civic and global engagement.
• Use recent accomplishments. As you accomplish things in college, you should remove your awards and activities from high school.
• Proofread! A sloppy resume will reflect poorly on your application.
