    I am wondering that about sub saharan Africa as well. I don't know why they are not more specific, but if you look at ETA statistics for the past few years it might help you get a better idea of how many openings each country has in general. It looks like Rwanda has had 3 ETA positions the past 3 years so it is probable they will have around 3 again this year. It is unlikely (although not impossible) it will jump from 3 to 15 or something like that. South Africa has had 10,10,14....Here is the list. Hope it helps http://us.fulbrightonline.org/eta-grant-application-statistics

    I'm considering Turkey, India, or Hungary. The original list I had in mind for potential options was much larger...I've really narrowed it down over the past few weeks, but they all have their pros and cons. What kind of research are you hoping to do?

    UAE would be amazing! I'm applying for an ETA and have narrowed down my choices to three countries so far. I hope to narrow down to a specific country by this weekend and just commit to that country.

    Hi photogeographic and Asmith I've started this for the next cycle http://forum.thegradcafe.com/topic/77132-fulbright-2017-2018/ Congratulations to this cycles grantees! And to those who did not get accepted; there are a lot of opportunities available to you to get similar experiences. And to those in the waiting game still; good luck

    Hi Everyone, Congratulations to last cycle's grantees! I thought I'd start this for the next cycle since the application cycle opens tomorrow. Let's help each other out during this process. Feel free to ask questions, introduce yourself, or blow off steam regarding the application process here. Good luck to everyone.
  6. Should I finish my master's?

    What would I do? I'd finish those two classes. However my next choice would be to contact the admissions committee...but like you said they accepted you with the understanding that you would have a master's degree, so don't be too surprised if they say you need to finish those classes. I don't think it would come across as lazy to ask though.

    Sorry to hear that, about a year ago I was all ready to leave for the Peace Corps only to get a similar email saying that my particular program had been cancelled due to security threats. I found this out with just a couple months to go. It is such a let down. It is hard to give too much advice on plan of action since I don't know what you are studying/want to study or what field you work in, but I do know that you will figure something out because I did when my program was cancelled for the Peace Corps. I just know what you are feeling right now, and it is a huge let down.
