  1. I had my Fulbright research interview today below is a list of questions I was asked How will you be recruiting participants given the sensitive topic of your research? How will you protect respondents? Elaborate on the theoretical framework of your study. What specific resources do you have available to help you with the project? How will you utilize these resources? Who are the people that will be supporting your research in your designated country and how will they be helping your research? Is your project feasible given the Fulbright time limits? Explain
  2. Interview date has been confirmed in late February. I applied for research in Mexico. The wait is going to make me so anxious,
  3. Application for research in Mexico submitted. Now the waiting begins
  4. Second year graduate student, awarded. VG/E, VG, E, G, VG I am completely shocked that I got the award after reading the comments from the third reviewer. First two reviewers we're generally positive with good points of concern or areas of improvement.
  5. I can't believe it, I won! I feel so lucky because I know a lot of people were equally or more deserving of the award.
  6. Thank you so much. I think you are right, this is an opportunity to just start fresh in this new point in my life. I'll continue to try to have this perspective.
  7. Thank you @Levon3 but it still hasn't hit me. It still doesn't feel real.
  8. Well it is official, my 5+ year relationship is over. I think I'm numb because I don't even feel sad, yet. Maybe I need more time for it to actually sink in. I just wish it wasn't happening right before I'm set to leave for a research trip abroad and as I try to get ready to start grad school this fall.
  9. Statement of Intent and housing application turned in. Now I'm just getting ready for my summer research internship abroad. Everything seems to have fallen into place and I am extremely grateful and fortunate to have been surrounded by such a wonderful support system during this very stressful time. I will never be able to adequately express my appreciation to all those people who have helped me during this daunting process. 

  10. I would love to do the Fulbright research program one day. However, I will be starting my Ph.D. program this fall and after talking to the department they suggested the best time for me to participate would be after my 3rd year once core classes and comprehensive exams are out of the way. In the meantime I'll live vicariously through all of you going through the application process. Best of luck to all of you this upcoming application cycle.
  11. Congratulations, I love seeing good news like this posted. Thank you for sharing they joy with the rest of us.
  12. Congratulations!!!! I'm beyond happy for you and grateful that you shared this exciting news with all of us.
  13. I'm not even an applicant (yet) I just love seeing how excited you all are about this program and the opportunity to travel abroad. I hope to participate in the program and share in the experience one day.
