Writing your Curriculum Vitae for Scholarships

What is the Difference between a Curriculum Vitae and a Resume?

For higher education positions, employers frequently want a curriculum vitae (otherwise known as a vita or CV) instead of a resume.

A resume is an individually designed summary (usually one or two pages) of personal, educational, and experience qualifications intended to demonstrate fitness for a particular position or type of position. A resume focuses attention on an individual’s strongest qualifications and develops them to fit the specific or general purpose for which the material is provided. (For more in-depth information see the UCS handout “Writing Resumes.”)
