Need Funding for Graduate School Study-Nationally and Abroad ?
Do you enjoy doing research?
Have you ever thought about getting a Ph.D.?
Would you like to teach English abroad?
Do you want to do research or take coursework abroad?
If you are a current senior or in your first year of graduate school, come to a workshop on writing proposals for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. The workshop will help you understand what NSF and Fulbright are looking for, will help you write a competitive proposal, and will help your referees write better letters of recommendation for you.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) offers 3-year graduate fellowships (tuition and a monthly stipend) to students in science, math, engineering and the social sciences to be used at ANY school in the US or abroad . The Fulbright Scholarship provides funding for 1 year to teach, reserach, or take coursework in one of over 100 countries.
Come to the workshop even if you're not positive you are interested in a Ph.D. or study abroad; writing a fellowship proposal can help you decide!
*To get to the Babcock Room: Take the Cathedral of Learning elevator to the 36th floor. Go to the front desk and make a right toward the window, and another small elevator will be on your right. Take this elevator to the 40th floor. The Babcock Room will be in front of you when you get off the elevator.
