Writing Sample (example)
Dear NAME,
I am John Doe, I attended St. John Fisher College and graduated in 2010 with bachelor degrees in the fields of Biology and Psychology. Subsequently, I completed a two-year fellowship at the University of Rochester studying metabolic bone diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporosis. I was recently accepted into a graduate program in biomedical sciences and hope to complete the program this upcoming academic year.
During my academic endeavor, I was privileged and fortunate to receive a few accolades. As a freshman in college, I was awarded the Emerging Leaders medal for my involvement in numerous campus activities such as the student government, campus ministry, student ambassador, and campus newspaper. Further down my college studies, I was accepted into the National Honor Society for Psychology, and the Who’s Who among college students cohort for completing two bachelor degrees and a minor requirements in the 4-year span. As a researcher during my fellowship years, I won the top awards for best research in two national conferences.
Years of schooling was paralleled by years of spiritual growth and a longing to understand the roots of my faith and my purpose. I lacked in knowledge concerning my belief, its establishment, and the people involved and responsible for it. The Israel Experience presented an unparalleled opportunity to learn about the roots of my belief while bridging a gap that I believe many Christians today are unaware of – the ties to Israel and the Jewish people. Furthermore, growing up in an age plagued by religious conflict and hatred towards Israel emphasizes the need to stand alongside our Jewish brothers and sisters to secure a land and a people that God Himself calls His own. As a student of the Bible, the chance to visit biblical sites, meet Israeli leaders and her citizens is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I am eternally grateful for. My hope is to be equipped with the knowledge, experience, and the proper mindset to be a watchman for Israel and aiding in her calling as the chosen one of God.

John Doe
