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.

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. 

You need not know your desired destination or specific Fulbright project to benefit from this workshop. The session is targeted to juniors, seniors and beginning graduate students who wish to apply for any type of Fulbright grant and ready materials for the Fulbright Priority Deadline of June 24, 2024 for grants beginning in fall 2025.

This In Person meeting will be held in room 514, 807 S. Wright St. - Champaign IL, 61820, at the Campus Center for Advising and Academic Services. (Illini Union Bookstore building - fifth floor)
