EMD Fellowship Self-Assessment Essay

EMD Fellowship Self-Assessment Essay

The self-assessment essay should be 250-500 words in length. EMD will evaluate your essay based on your writing's development, depth, and organization, your current and future role in emergency management and homeland security, and the importance you place on your future in the field after completing your fellowship. Your essay should address:

Your reasons for seeking a fellowship in emergency management,
What you believe will be your future contributions to the field of emergency management; and
What you would hope to accomplish during your fellowship with EMD.

We will use the information you provide about your experience, motivation, and intentions to assess your potential contributions to the future of the department and field.

To score high on the self-assessment essay, you must demonstrate an understanding of homeland security and emergency management (as you define the terms). Your experiences described in the paper and your resume should demonstrate a solid commitment to public service. The essay and examples should stress the relevance of your current position or education as it relates to public service and the impact you want to have.
