  1. Over the past few days I've experienced a huge slump in my graduate career. I'm a first year graduate student in the social sciences who thought it'd be a good idea to apply for the Ford Foundation Pre-doctoral fellowship...boy was I wrong. I received a rejection a few days ago despite relatively high marks from reviewers and an application that I put everything I had into. No honorable mention, no waitlist, just a flat out rejection. What's worse is someone in my cohort received the fellowship that I wanted. I know for a fact that my work is at least as good as theirs if not better, so I'm struggling to reconcile the fact that some random academics deemed my project inadequate. Any tips for not going off when fellowship committees don't know what they're doing? Clearly I've heard all of the "many qualified applicants and too few awards" and "sometimes these things just happen" clich├ęs, but I'm looking for something more thoughtful, ideally from others who have been wronged and watch others take what they don't deserve.
  2. Anyone apply for the 2018 Pre-doctoral Fellowship? Anxiously awaiting till March notifications, and for my recommenders to upload their letters before the supplemental deadline lol >.<

  4. Hi, I'm a white female in a science field considering applying to the Ford foundation Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, but I just realized that it's not targeted to all diversity candidates (e.g. females in science), but specifically to members of underrepresented racial & ethnic groups. I was wondering if I should even consider applying. I figured that finding out the racial/ethnic demographics of previous winners and honorable mentions would answer my question. However, I haven't been able to find this data. Anyone have any leads?
  5. I'm starting this forum for those who applied to the for fellowships predoctoral competition. If you want, comment with your field and standing (e.g. Non starred, first year etc)!
