The second main component of the Fulbright application is the Personal Statement. In this workshop, we’ll offer guidance on how students can write about themselves in a way that balances professionalism with the need to explain, in personal terms, what makes them tick. We’ll take attendees through a series of exercises to help them enumerate the pivotal experiences that have guided their scholarly trajectory, and we’ll show how applicants can use those experiences to craft a compelling case for why they deserve a Fulbright grant. We’ll also review sample statements. 

Please register in advance for the link above to join this online workshop.

This workshop is for students applying for a "study/research" award to conduct research or an artistic project. Students applying for English Teaching Assistant awards should attend the workshop on Friday, April 26.
