Sample Statement #1:
“I am very excited about this fellowship mostly because it makes me feel that I did the right thing in choosing to study physics. I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do in college. At first, it didn't occur to me to do physics because it is just too fun! It is also easy to feel like you're not cut out for it when you're talking to so many brilliant people all the time. But getting the Big Red set of lectures felt like getting my first bike. I hope to be a good scientist one day and a good person too, like my donor. I’ve never met him, but he seems to be quite a role model for people everywhere and especially in science. I hope I can live my life in that way also.”

Sample Statement #2:
“I have received this award for the past two years. This scholarship is dedicated to providing students with financial resources to further their education. It has not only allowed me to attend Drew University, but also empowered me to continue representing my community to the best of my ability. For my documentary class, I am making a documentary about Asian American identity and how they reconcile the radically different cultures. It is amazing to be financially supported and encouraged to create content that represents by identity. This scholarship is one of the few reasons why I can afford a higher education, and for that, I thank you.”

Sample Statement #3:
“Having a successful career in the arts gets more and more difficult as time goes on. To be recognized with the Vincent and Genovina Porcelli Scholarship in Theatre Arts implies that people see my work and think I have the potential to flourish and succeed, which I find extremely meaningful. I extend my purest thanks to whoever decided to award me this scholarship, and to the donors who established this fund to recognize young artists.”
