Member Testimonials

“ProFellow Academy is invaluable! The recent workshop “How to Create a Killer Personal Statement” proved to be critical in my graduate school application process. I’d written personal statements before, but I always dread embarking on the process. I’m never sure what to include and in what order. In the workshop, Vicki provided clear instructions that actually made me excited to sit down and write mine. Her extensive experience and guidance are a godsend for any graduate applicant! I also value the ability to receive advice when I need it and connect with former fellows in the Academy.”

“I have found ProFellow Academy to be a tremendous resource over the last six months! I took the Kickstarter Course and attended one of Vicki ‘s live Office Hours for my specific questions regarding research funding. Prior to finding ProFellow, I really hadn’t found a single site that concentrated on helping PhD students find funding!  I’ve now located several opportunities that I believe are within my grasp – as well as application strategies that I believe will help me to craft competitive applications. I would highly recommend ProFellow Academy to any doctoral student launching a serious search for fellowships.  I know of nothing else on the web quite like it.”
