3.How long will it take me to attain this goal?

4. If the goal will take a long time to attain, could I set smaller goals that I could attain while still working toward my bigger goal?

Dear Scholarship Selection Committee: I have loved traveling and reading about other cultures since I was a little girl.  Sitting on the floor of our family kitchen and reading about people who lived all over  the globe as well as living for a year in Argentina, instilled in me a respect for  diversity and a burning desire to be an advocate for those underserved on this  planet. This goal has been my reason for past formal and informal studies, and a  degree in xyz will provide me the final tools I will need to meet the challenges I will  face, and to be the strong advocate I would like to be. The Carol E. Macpherson  Scholarship would help me greatly as I work toward my goal. Below please find my  personal statement using the sections you have requested.

My plan is to complete my undergraduate degree in xyz, and pursue a career as  an advocate for clean and healthy environments while living in Africa or South  America. I am currently conducting research on women, water, health and law to  add to the existing information about the role of women in preserving and  protecting freshwater resources. In the past ten years, I completed an internship in  Ethiopia and in Uganda, learned about the United Nations, and honed my  organizational, advocacy and cultural skills. I needed to take a break from college  while my children were young, but am now re‐energized to return to school to  complete the degree, and gain the knowledge and skills I need to pursue my dream
