2012 Fall University Tour

ProFellow University Tour: Sept. 19-Oct. 12, 2012

From September 19- October 12, 2012, I will be giving seminars at top universities on finding and applying to professional and academic fellowships. I’ll give an overview of my experience in 4 different fellowship programs and provide insider tips on how to prepare a competitive application, how to make an impression in individual and group interviews, and how to make the most of your fellowship experience. The presentation will give an overview of a wide range of fellowships for graduating seniors, graduate and doctoral students, and professionals to fund graduate study, research, career advancement and overseas opportunities. We’ll also provide specific information on the Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowships in Germany, the Alfa Fellowships in Russia and the Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowships in Washington, DC. Stay tuned for announcements and updates as we finalize our plans!

Also, while in Washington, DC we are holding our first Esteemed Fellows Dinner for renowned alumni from a variety of prestigious fellowship programs. Two aspiring fellows will win an invitation to participate in this intimate event. Read more about the ProFellow Dinner Fellowship.

If you have questions, please contact me. We hope to see you there! ~ Vicki
