  1. Prepping for the 2018 cycle!

    Also willing to give it a read.
  2. Fulbright Hays DDRA 2017-2018

    I wonder if notification timeline is university specific. I haven't heard anything yet. Not sure whether this is due to my university or whether I'm on the waitlist/reject list.
  3. Pre-Grad School Master Plan? (FULL YEAR to spare!)

    I'm a grad student in the US, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but if I were you in my gap year, I'd be thinking about the following: Did you do any research for your senior thesis/MA? If so, turn it into an article you can publish. Build connections/collaborations with your intended research site. Do whatever pilot work you would otherwise have done in your first summer of graduate school (building connections, participant observation, etc.). Apply for fellowships you qualify for as a recent graduate/ incoming grad; not sure what those would be Europe, but seek external funding whenever you can. Are there any methods you plan to use / feel you need to learn/strengthen for your research? Develop what you can now. I found it useful to learn good interviewing skills through volunteering at a clinic and helping w/ an ongoing qual. research; stats skills through helping analyze different datasets, etc. Maybe submit something to a conference or two (apply for travel awards!), attend relevant workshops/summer institutes.
  4. SOP for PhD in History

    I can give it a quick go!

    So it has started. Still waiting
  9. Wenner Gren

    well hopefully we'll know tomorrow, and that it'll be positive!

    Same here. Hoping today's the day though. Seems in previous years it was always earlier in the week when they notified.

    Has anyone heard back from WG?
  12. Wenner Gren

    Has anyone heard anything? Also, daykid, have you heard from NSF DDIG? I know a few who have gotten rejections already, but I know they roll out acceptances and rejections over several weeks.
  13. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Have they in the past?
  14. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Fingers crossed for notification!

    Someone I know is currently trying to fulfill the service requirement, and was told to document that he had tried to apply ~30 positions and had been rejected from all those positions.
  17. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Hopefully we get a big notification today. So tired of waiting.
  18. Wenner Gren 2017

    Not yet. Hopefully this week!
  19. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Lol. Mine too, friend, mine too.
  20. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Hopes for today?
  21. Fulbright 2017-2018

    It's been so slow the past two days. :|
  22. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Aww best of luck in the next cycle! At least you have closure for this one.
  23. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Sigh. Any notifications today?
  24. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Yeah this is what I'm hoping. Fingers crossed. I'm also submitting something today, so hopefully, one out, one in.
  25. Fulbright 2017-2018

    Yeah hopefully notifications all fall into this week. The application has opened for 2018-2019; not sure if that normally coincides at all with notification peak.
