(c)    Append statements prepared according to the instructions at the end of the model CV.

If you need to prepare a CV: Please overwrite the current content of the model CV with your own information.  Please preserve the major headings and format as much as possible.  The imagined information presently in the CV portion is intended to give you guidance as to what is expected.  If you have nothing to enter in a section or it is not applicable, please overwrite the imaginary entries with Not applicable.  Only a few faculty members will have information pertinent to every section.  You may also re-order the sections to conform to your priorities.  That is, you may put the scholarship sections first or last depending on your track and your role here.
