Fall 2013 University Tour

ProFellow University Tour, September 2013

This September is ProFellow’s fifth Biannual University Tour. Drawing on her experience in four competitive fellowships, ProFellow Cofounder Vicki Johnson provides seminars to students on how to prepare a competitive fellowship application, how to make an impression in individual and group interviews, and how to make the most of the fellowship experience. She also gives 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. Seminars can be geared towards a specific audience or discipline. The tour is sponsored by fellowship organizations and the seminars are free for universities and participating students. Stay tuned for announcements and updates as we finalize our plans.

Also, during our Fall Tour, Stanford University will be sponsoring a special Esteemed Fellows Dinner on September 19th for San Francisco Bay Area fellowship alumni and aspiring fellows from the Stanford community.
