Are you planning to apply for the Fulbright grant to research but don’t know where to start? Do you have a cool question you’d like to explore in a foreign country, but need the tools to design a viable research project? Join us for a crash course in research design and methods especially for Fulbright applicants!  We will explain what a Fulbright selection committee will be looking for in your proposal, and then help you start laying the foundation of a solid research design. Topics will include: Tackling a literature review; posing a research question that you can answer with international fieldwork, lab work, or archival work; determining the appropriate data and methods for your research question; obtaining Institutional Review Board Approval

This workshop is intended to be a pressure-free, informal way to acquaint Fulbright applicants with the basics of formulating a strong research plan and laying it out clearly in a Fulbright Statement of Grant Purpose. One session is targeted to undergraduates and recent alumni, and the other for graduate students interested in pursuing research under a Fulbright grant in 2018-19.
