Testimonials from previous workshops:

“Vicki’s workshop offered great insight for someone in my position: McNair scholar, 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.”

“Vicki’s Fulbright courses have been incredibly helpful! I have read all that I could on Reddit, Slack, blogs, and elsewhere, and I have also received advice from my alma mater’s Fulbright adviser, but Vicki’s insights, answers, and strategy go above and beyond. I am so impressed. Thank you for offering this service to us, Vicki! It’s really clarified the application process.”

“As a mid-career professional, I found your course to be very insightful and instructive about how to creatively fund my next career goals through the many fellowships listed on ProFellow. This is a great resource!”
