Last Minute Tips for Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship Applicants

January 26, 2012

The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship application submission deadline is February 1 at 5:00 p.m. ET.  Your application and all supporting credentials must be electronically submitted by this time.

The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship requires three references and, for countries where the working languge is not English (even if you are a native speaker or fluent in the language), a Foreign Language Evaluation (FLE).  Applicants register their referees and language evaluators in the Embark Online Application Step F.  Make sure that your references and Foreign Language Evaluation (where appropriate) have been electronically submitted by this deadline.  If your referees/evaluators have not yet submitted their documents, you should contact them and remind them of the February 1 deadline.  Incomplete applications may not be recommended.

Other tips are pretty much the same as for the traditional program:

  • Make sure uploaded materials are legible
  • Correct and revise
  • Have COMPLETE application critiqued    
  • Correct and revise
  • Print all PDF pages BEFORE online submission
  • Proof final PDF copy…SPELLING COUNTS!
  • Correct and revise
  • Make sure references and FLE, where required, are submitted

Under no circumstances will any documents be accepted after the deadline.  All applicants MUST have uploaded both their undergraduate and graduate transcripts.

Questions?  Feel free to contact Fulbright U.S. Student Program staff, M-F, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET.
