Highlighted Dates and Deadlines

Students and alumni who want to advice about externally funded extraordinary opportunities (EOs) are encouraged to schedule an introductory meeting now with Ms. Gallop, the National Scholarships and Fellowships Coordinator and Fulbright Program Adviser.  In general, you should plan to have at least one follow up advising meeting.

Applicants for EOs should allot at least four weeks (and often 12+ weeks) to prepare a strong application with guidance from Ms. Gallop and to obtain strong and detailed letters of recommendation.  Some EOs have required campus deadlines and required endorsement.
