Every year, multiple Illinois students receive Fulbright grants to serve as English Teaching Assistants (ETA) overseas. The recipients come from different colleges and are heading to distinct countries, but there are some commonalities to putting together a winning ETA application. Join us for a workshop that looks in depth at some winning English Teaching Assistantship applications in order to help you in considering how best to portray the characteristics Fulbright is seeking. We also plan to have some recent Fulbright grantees on hand to share their application methods. Our goal is for you to leave the session with an outline and even a few sentences to start your statement of purpose essay for the Fulbright application.
You need not know your desired destination to benefit from this workshop. The session is targeted to undergraduates, recent alumni, and beginning graduate students interested in pursuing a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in 2018-19.
