Thinking about applying for the Fulbright IIE Fellowship next fall? The Fulbright Program funds over 1,000 grants annually to undertake advanced research in 160 countries across the globe. (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/)
The GradGrants Center will be facilitating a six-week online Fulbright proposal-writing bootcamp to help you develop successful proposals run through the Canvas system. The bootcamps are organized into a series of modules that include weekly assignments and peer reviews. The objective is to encourage you to develop your proposal in a community of peers that offers you detailed feedback, and ultimately improves your proposal. As the Fulbright reviewers are a mixture of state department officials, academics from different disciplines, and non-academics working in a specific world regions, this interdisciplinary environment will help tailor your proposal to the particular audience.
When: Wednesday, July 6th – Wednesday August 17th
Where: Canvas (it’s all online so you can be anywhere!)
Who: All IU graduate students are welcome to this free service, and the GradGrants Center staff will facilitate the bootcamp.
Series of modules/assignments:
