Student Stories

You have read about fellowship opportunities and how to begin the application process.  You may have even submitted your online profile sheet and visited the Fellowships Office.

Now that you have some fellowship opportunities that spark your interest, you wonder: What is the application process really like?

Students of diverse backgrounds and disciplines have come through our doors.  They dedicate months of time and effort into preparing for and applying to internationally and nationally competitive fellowships.  Some have received awards.  Some have not but learned about themselves through the process.  They used the skills, knowledge and drive gained through this experience to get accepted into graduate school, Peace Corps, and other opportunities that have enriched their lives.  Here are a few of their stories.
