Fulbright Workshop: “Getting a Leg Up on Your Fulbright Application”

May 17 2017 - 4:30pm

Special Workshop: “Getting a Leg Up on Your Fulbright Application”
Wednesday, May 17

4:30–6:00 pm

Writing Room (in the Writing Center, Lauritzen Hall, Whitman College)

Dr. Judy Swan of the Writing Center will lead a session to jump-start your Fulbright Statement of Grant Purpose and Personal Statement. Don’t worry if you haven’t begun drafting anything! If you know your country and have an idea of your project, you’ll definitely benefit from this workshop. Space is limited; click this link to register.

If you’re unable to attend there will be a webinar-style session offered this summer by Steve Gump, associate director of fellowship advising in the Office of International Programs (you may attend remotely or in person) that covers similar material. And Dr. Swan plans to host one more Fulbright session on campus in very late summer: stay tuned for details about both events.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program also provides a wealth of resources to assist with your application. From the “Videos & Tutorials” page, select

·         Events for upcoming webinars (always free; you should register in advance; filtering by type for “Webinars” makes the list more manageable); or

·         Fulbright Webinars for recorded versions of past webinars (available 24/7). Now, note that the past webinars for the 2017–18 Award Year are last year’s webinars; this page will soon be updated with webinars for the current application cycle (the 2018–19 Award Year).

Also, please make note of the Fulbright application procedure and timeline.  We look forward to working with you on your Fulbright application over the coming months as we move toward the Monday, September 25, campus deadline.
