Fulbright 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard from Argentina or any other South American countries?  I called Susan Muendl a few weeks ago and she said she had no idea when notifications would go out.  I have been keeping the May 15th date in my mind since the website says: It is anticipated that all principal candidates will receive notification no later than May 15th.

But maybe they are really just way further behind with notifications than they anticipated. 

 

Still waiting for Argentina here, haven't heard anything since the initial finalist email. It's definitely later than they've notified in the past. I think there are some other SA countries waiting as well?

Just found out I'm a (P) for Fulbright-mtvU, VERY excited! @sirskipalot: My project is one-part music festival and one-part authoring monthly digital stories on the intersection of music & the environment. I'm currently a music journalist for a DC paper and have worked in live music programming (including festivals) since college. This feels like a dream!

 

Congratulations to everyone else selected...if anyone else has been selected for a Fulbright in Iceland...let me know and I'd love to Skype. For those that still haven't heard back, keep beaming that inner positive energy!

Wow! I just submitted my medical history form less than twenty-four hours ago and just received an email saying that my medical clearance has already been issued. Cool! Is that really it?

 

Wow is right! I think I'll call about this on Monday. I submitted mine almost 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything or seen anything on the portal page. But good for you that it got done so quickly!

The email was from the person in charge of the region. Maybe it is a regional thing?

Also, I just heard that a girl in my school just got bumped up to P for a Taiwan ETA. Alternates, there is still hope!

Thank you for sharing! Every alternate bump I hear of eases the anxiousness ;)

I still have not heard back on my final status. I applied to Oman. I contacted my program officer and he told me his colleagues in DC still haven't given him any notice for the recommended people who applied to Oman. :-( :-( :-( :-(

I received the same email 24 hours after I submitted my forms online.  I think we both received clearance if they emailed us back.

Just got the email. (A) to Argentina. Disappointing since this happened three years ago too, but hoping for some movement/good news within the next month. Could be worse, right? Just more waiting.

I'm alternate for Moldova, and have been waiting since mid-April. Hopefully your wait isn't that long. I've observed in past forums that things usually start heating up for alternates next week through mid June. Fingers crossed!
