  1. Soros Fellowship, 2018-19

    Looking at previous forum topics, it seems like there are a few people every year on here applying for this highly competitive fellowship. I'm thinking of applying, and so wanted to build a community here with others to share our experiences.

    Could someone link me to the list of awardees? Nevermind, found it. https://www.borenawards.org/fellowships/2017-boren-fellows

    Actually, I think because I'm going to move soon that I wrote down my parents' address. They just sent it to me. The new logo does not reflect the prestigiousness and class that the old one brought.

    Hmm. Still nothing.

    Not yet. Maybe tomorrow? And you're in Boston?

    I was kind of looking forward to some physical documents, maybe like a signed note of our acceptances. But I guess everything is online now.

    Have people bought plane tickets yet?

    His accent was horrible. Though I thought the production was pretty good. Not a big fan of the "'desirable' white American man in China" part of the film though.

    I just watched the required video for the orientation, and it is so dramatic. This is the link to the agenda for the day in case you're interested.

    I am so excited! I can't do any work because I keep on thinking about this. Anybody have the same experience?

    And @SwissMister, did you hear back yet?

    I'm really glad to hear that it went well for her. I'm imagining what I would do if my mother was going through the same thing, and it's heart wrenching just to think about it. So excited for all of us in the Cafe who got it! And for those who didn't receive it, I feel your pain. I was rejected from Fulbright three times and Harvard once before I got in, and so there's still a lot of hope for those who are persistent. I remember I was feeling so down on myself because I just spent 3+ months on each application, and it wasn't fruitful. I felt so sad and disappointed, and I remember the moment when I was driving back with some co-workers and my mood completely changed. I do wish the best for you, and if you have questions for applying later, I'm sure I speak for everyone here that we are more than willing to help.

    And congratulations @ladyben-kenobi, I was rooting for you to get it! Are you excited? What decision will you make?
  14. Boren 2017-2018

    YESS!!! I knew all those times I opened the doors for people would pay off.
