Summer Fellowship Series

This summer workshop series supports doctoral students who are planning to apply to graduate or postgraduate fellowship opportunities. Participants gain insight into what reviewers are looking for, developed a better understanding of what made past applications successful, begin drafting application materials that highlight individual experiences and strengths, received small group feedback on personal and research statement ideas, and more. 

This series is applicable to students in ANY field.
