Workshop: Writing a Statement of Grant Purpose

Event Type: Conference/Workshop

One of the two main components of the Fulbright application is the Statement of Grant Purpose, in which applicants must explain the project they propose to conduct during the fellowship period. In this workshop, we’ll show students how best to approach this statement; how to present their project in the most direct, concrete, and convincing way possible; and how to strategize their narrative in light of Fulbright’s mission and aims. We’ll also review sample statements. In short, attendees will get a crash course in proposal writing -- one tailored specifically for Fulbright. 

  • The U.S. Department of State has announced the opening of the 2023-2024 Fulbright U.S. Student Grant Program. To introduce students to the program and help students prepare strong applications, the Graduate College’s Office of External Fellowships will offer a series of workshops and information sessions in April tailored specifically for graduate students.
  • Supporting up to one year of fieldwork, laboratory research, arts training, and English teaching in over 140 countries around the globe, Fulbright grants allow students to add a cross-cultural dimension to their graduate studies and build an international network. Applicants must be U.S. citizens, they can be at any stage of their graduate program, and they can come from any academic discipline. 
  • The Office of External Fellowships will hold each of its sessions twice, and all will take place online.
