Relationship Bteween Health and Poverty
How does poverty relate to poor health?
Professor’s instructions: 250-500 word essay
You will all write a type of essay common in applying for academic admission or
scholarships called the Statement of Purpose. It is usually a short explanation of your goals and
experiences that have shaped you as a student. This helps the committee understand what you
like as a student and how you’ll use their scholarship or what you’ll be like in their department.
You want to sell yourself and sound like an asset. This essay is very similar to the cover letter
often asked for when applying for a job, so this essay has a practical purpose beyond applying for scholarships/transfer admission. Chose from one of two prompts:
From the ACC Scholarship Application –
Please provide a personal statement of 250-500 words that discusses your educational and
career plans and how ACC can help you achieve them. Please also include any extenuating or
unusual circumstances you want the committee to consider when reviewing your application.
*Take your time to write a thoughtful, grammatically correct essay as this is a major component
of the scholarship application.*
From the ApplyTexas.org Common Application Topic E –
Choose an issue of importance to you – the issue could be personal, school related, local,
political, or international in scope – and write an essay in which you explain the significance of
that issue to yourself, your family, your community, or your generation.
50% of the grade will come from Organization and Ideas, 50% will come from Mechanics
I chose the second prompt. I want to write about how being poor affects health.
