Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Create a polished overview of your academic career.
When should I use a CV?
A CV is basically a longer academic version of a resume, offering a summary of your academic history, research interests, relevant work experience, honors, accomplishments, etc.
A CV is used when applying for:
Fellowships and Scholarships
Research Funding and Grants
A CV presents a full history of your academic credentials, meaning its length is variable and includes almost every aspect of your academic experience. Here are the types of information that a CV may contain:
Include your name, address, phone, and e-mail for home and office, if applicable.
Indicate your major, type of degree, and the date each degree was awarded for each post secondary school attended.
Honors and Awards
List each award, granting institution and the date awarded. If you have only one award (e.g., graduation honors), consider incorporating this information within the education section.
List paid or volunteer research work. Include the institution, nature of the position, duties, dates, and supervisor.
List any courses that you assisted with as a teaching assistant, co-taught, or taught. Note the institution, role held in each, and supervisor.
List courses that you've taken, as well as any statistical and computer programs or data analysis you're familiar with.
Include title of agency, projects for which funds were awarded, and dollar amounts.
List relevant professional experience such as administrative work and summer jobs.
List any professional societies with which you're affiliated.
Document each publication in the proper citation style.
Similar to the section on publications, separate this category into sections for posters and papers.
