Scholarship Events and Deadlines

The two main sections of a Fulbright application consist of 1) an essay describing your Fulbright project and how you will spend your year—Statement of Grant Purpose, and 2) an essay describing why you should be the one to do this project—Personal Statement.

In this 60-minute session, we will dissect the key components Fulbright reviewers are seeking to glean from the personal statement, review and discuss past winning Fulbright personal statements, and assist you in beginning to sketch and portray your own story. Experts from the Writers Workshop and the National and International Scholarships Program will lead this session.

You need not know your desired destination or specific Fulbright project to benefit from this workshop. The session is targeted to undergraduates, recent alumni, and beginning graduate students interested in pursuing any type of Fulbright grant for use in 2018-19.
