Meet with a fellowships advisor to identify and explore suitable award opportunities, understand the award application process, and co-create an action plan for pursuing nationally competitive award opportunities.
Draft application materials and have them reviewed (multiple times) by a fellowships advisor, faculty, and others, as appropriate. Always plan ahead to allow ample time for revisions!
Make sure to apply by the campus deadline (if applicable) and/or the national deadline, and wait for responses from award foundations. Once you have submitted successfully, the hardest part then is waiting for news!
Work with the fellowships advisor to prepare for award interviews, when applicable, and/or determine next steps. Now that you have finished, what else will you accomplish? Congratulations!
