Testimonials from Fellowship winners: 

“Thank you for this insightful workshop! You do such an excellent job clearly framing and posing really help questions for anyone going through the application process to wrap their minds around it.”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful workshop. I really appreciate it and feel much more confident about how to start this application process now. I really found your insights valuable and appreciate the concrete steps and elements to think about in my application.”

“Your workshop offered great insight for someone in my position: applying to graduate programs five years after college, first in my family to attend college. The seminar offered knowledge and support that many individuals from my background do not have access to. I would recommend ProFellow to anyone starting on the path to graduate school.”
