This event is intended for ETA applicants enrolled in the online, self-paced course through ONIF. If you would like to enroll in this free course, please email email@example.com.
Attendees will share and receive feedback on drafts of their personal statements. To register, please upload a draft of your personal statement in Brightspace by July 10.
This 1-page narrative is designed to give the reviewers a picture of you as an individual. It is an opportunity to tell the committee more about the trajectory that you have followed and what plans you have for the future. Whereas the Statement of Grant Purpose focuses on what you will be doing in the host country if offered a grant, the Personal Statement concentrates on how your background has influenced your development and how that inspired you to apply for an English Teaching Assistant Program.
The personal statement can deal with your personal history, family background, intellectual development, and the educational, professional, or cultural opportunities to which you have or have not been exposed; explain their impact. This should not be a reiteration of facts already listed in the Biographical Data sections or an elaboration of the Statement of Grant Purpose.
