Fulbright Hint #7 – 2014

Here is the 7th in our series of Fulbright Hints for applicants.

Questions 2 and 4

Have you filled in your choices for Question2: Country to Which You Are Applying, and Question 4: Field of Proposed Grant Study/Research or English Teaching Assistant? In order to develop a credible and competitive application to the Fulbright Committee – both on campus and nationally, you should have a decent draft of most parts of your application by now. And you need to have identified these 2 basic aspects of your application to do that! If you haven’t already done so, it is more than time to go back into your application and fill in Questions 2 and 4.

Review sessions

We very strongly encourage every applicant to attend one — or 2 — or all (!) of the Writing and Workshop Sessions that the SU Fulbright Committee offers. Our experience confirms that applicants who seek and receive feedback are more successful.
