Fulbright Personal Statement Workshop
Friday April 20th, 3:30-5:00 pm
514 Illini Union Bookstore
Hosted by the National and International Scholarships Program and the Writers Workshop

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards approximately 2,000 full scholarships annually to students for a year of study, research or English teaching in any of 140 countries worldwide.  If you are a junior, senior, or recent alumni, and you are looking for an exciting way to spend a year abroad starting in the Fall of 2019, then it’s time to think seriously about submitting an application for a Fulbright Scholarship! The National and International Scholarships Program provides in-depth workshops on each application component to answer questions you have, show you samples of successful applications, and provide helpful suggestions to improve the effectiveness of your writing. On April 20th, we will discuss the key components Fulbright reviewers are looking for in the personal statement. The session is targeted to juniors, seniors, and recent alumni who wish to apply for the Fulbright Priority Deadline of June 25, 2018.
