What should I write about in the essay?

Some points to consider when writing your essay:

  • You are free to choose the format and topics covered in the essay, just as long as they respect the word limit and other instructions specified in the application material
  • We are looking for essays that are well-thought of, convincing, and able to demonstrate your scholarly writing abilities
  • Given the general theme stated here, the essay should be able to explain how your study abroad experience will benefit the Philippines and Filipino society, factoring in your field of study/expertise
