Each spring semester the Office of Global Awards runs a series of workshops designed to prepare students for the Fulbright application process. Each of the four workshops will be offered two to three times this semester. Please plan accordingly, Fulbright Fridays workshops are limited to 20 participants.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is an opportunity for students to study, teach English, or do research abroad after graduation. Currently juniors and seniors who are planning to apply for a Fulbright grant this cycle are encouraged to take advantage of these workshops. Please see the Fulbright Events webpage for more information and to RSVP. Workshops are listed below:
Fulbright I: Deciding on a country, type of grant and competition selection criteria
This information session is designed for students who are interested in the Fulbright, but need to decide on the grant type and country. We will also discuss Fulbright’s selection criteria, focusing on the different audiences who will be reading your application.
Fulbright II: Grant Purpose
Experiencing writer’s block in beginning your statement of grant purpose? Not sure of the difference between an ETA and Fulbright statement of grant purpose? Uncertain how to secure a letter of affiliation? This planning workshop gives you useful tips on how to begin drafting and developing your statement. Working in a small group (max 20 participants), we’ll also look at past examples and create actions plans for your own Fulbright research.
Fulbright III: Beginning an application in Embark
We’ll troubleshoot the smaller details of the application, clarifying tricky questions and formatting issues with short-answer work histories, etc. You’ll leave with a clear to-do list and a sense of confidence that you are filling out the application “correctly.”
