    :-). You can just sort the data on countries. Just be sure it resorts with all related data held together. I do that a lot too.

    Tidbits learned from the spreadsheet: I just noticed that someone is working with 'Action for Cheetahs'!!! That sounds so incredibly, freakin' rad.

    Hey alls! I just went through and fixed some formatting issues on the spreadsheet. Overall people are doing a really great job of keeping it clean and up to date. I suspect not everyone loves spreadsheets! Keep adding information! FYI: If you are not sure of the input choices, hover over the category header and they will pop up. The colors should autofill.

    I just did some cleanup on the spreadsheet. Remember that you can just enter your name into the bottom of the list. It's a spreadsheet folks so the data can be shuffled around by column, don't worry about trying to be alphabetical. It's just nice to see others applying places, make connections and get the stress out as we get closer to the final days. Cheers! Amirah

    That sounds like someone the region administrator may be able to help you with or your FPA on campus. And perhaps the police? Just sayin.

    Umm, nope. I spoke to the research award. It's the only thing I have familiarity with. I don't know anything about the Scholar award but I thought it would be helpful and supportive to share what I do know, that's why I specified in my original post that I was referring to the research award. Sorry for the confusion. Come sometime in January (hopefully) those applying for research/study awards will, if they make it through the first round receive an email which looks like this: "I am pleased to inform you that the National Screening Committee of the Institute of International Education (IIE) has recommended you for a grant under the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the academic year 2013-14. Your application has been forwarded to the supervising agency abroad for final review. In addition, your application will be forwarded to the program sponsor, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State, for transmittal to the presidentially-appointed J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB). The FFSB makes final decisions on Fulbright awards. This letter is not notification of a grant since the number of recommended candidates exceeds the number of awards available. If you are selected for an award, you will receive notification of your status from the FFSB. If you are named an alternate or are not selected, you will be notified by IIE. For further information about the next stage in the selection process, go to the website: Since selection is a lengthy process, the final decision for some countries may not be made before the end of June. In the meantime, it is important that you advise us immediately if there are factors that could preclude you from accepting the grant. Receipt of a grant is contingent upon: (a) submission of official hard copies of your transcripts (see below); ( completion of the bachelor’s degree for graduating seniors; ( c ) approval by the FSB; (d) concurrence by the supervising agency abroad; (e) medical and research clearances; (f) security factors in the country of your application; (g) availability of funds; and (h) participation in a Pre-Departure Orientation, where required. Congratulations on your success in the preliminary stages of the competition. Sincerely yours, Daniel Kramer Director, U.S. Student Programs Please arrange to have official transcripts from your current academic institution (if enrolled) and all institutions from which you received a Bachelor’s or Master’s or doctoral degree sent to: OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS U.S. Student ProgramsInstitute of International Education 809 United Nations Plaza New York, NY 10017 IIE must receive these transcripts by March 1, 2013 at the latest in order for you to continue to be considered for a 2013-14 Fulbright grant. Transcripts must be in the original sealed envelope as issued by the Registrar’s office. See the website above for more information. "

    Well, if they asked you for more documentation you should get on sending it. For the research awards if we make it through the rec process we have to send another round of transcripts, only they have to be official this time. Then you wait....and wait....and wait... You can check the past spreadsheets to find out when others were notified and/or to contact them:

    The notifications are for when you find out your accepted/waitlisted/not accepted status. January is the 1st round notifications. Does that clarify?
  10. Fulbright 2014-2015

    DONE!! Weehooo!

    Hello my friends! I have updated the spreadsheet and hope you will use it, love it, find it useful and a possible stress reliever. I know I did last year. Anyone with the link can edit. I left the 'Region' and 'Status' columns populated so you can just cut and paste your details into it. I started the process. Just make changes according to your particular region and needs. It's fun to see the range of people and connect with others who may be in your field/regional interest. **What I don't have time to do, however, is police the spreadsheet. So please add with care.** Thank you!!

    Hey I can't find a thread for the new application cycle. Am I crazy or has no one got a 2014-2015 thread happening yet?
