JEF will host two OPTIONAL workshops to help students complete their applications to the best of their abilities:

Workshop #1: Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 3:00PM via Zoom

At this workshop, students will be guided through the application process, and will be provided guidance on the type of details they should think about and include in their application.

At this workshop, students will have an opportunity to discuss their draft application, their Personal Statement in particular, with JEF Board members who have volunteered to help review and provide comments and suggestions to help students with final editing.
