    Not to rub it in, but would you mind updating the spreadsheet?

    Sorry you didn't get the grant. But, good attitude!

    I did feel like my regional program manager was kind of short with me when I was asking her questions before I submitted my application. She just kept referring me to published information, and was not really very helpful.

    I think these people are probably overwhelmed and annoyed with the barage of redudant questions they are getting. If someone snapped at you, I doubt its anything personal. Even if it is, I'm pretty sure these program managers don't have any say in who does and doesn't get a grant. Plus, at worst, you're on the same playing field as scores of other people who have asked their program managers seemingly stupid questions.

    I think these program managers could save themselves a lot of trouble and frustration if they just created a blog where they publicly answered people's questions! That way no one would have to ask the same question twice -- or 27 times!

    That argument would make sense if the Fulbright were merely a funding source for research. But I don't think that's the main goal of the program. The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 by the U.S. Congress to "enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries." A year is barely enough time to do that!
