  2. How might other Midland students benefit from your background, experiences, and values?
  3. How have you served communities, groups, or organizations, both past and present, and how will further education allow you to strengthen those service contributions?

Applicants should submit a 1-page business resume highlighting their employment and education background. The employment section should include locations, titles, and dates. The education section should include dates of attendance and degrees received.

References

Applicants should submit a completed Reference Form providing current contact information for two professional references. These references should be people who have worked with you in a professional context.
