What You Will Do and Why It Matters: How to Write a Strong Fellowship Application

Applying for funding is an integral part of life as a graduate student and working as a professional academic or researcher. Although you may be experienced in writing about your research, the committees reviewing your application will be composed of experts from multiple disciplines. In most cases, those evaluating your application will not be at all familiar with your specific area of research. Writing a strong fellowship application, therefore, means understanding the needs of this audience with regard to structuring a convincing narrative throughout.


Participants will learn the following strategies:

  • how to clearly present your proposed research for a fellowship application;
  • how to frame the significance of the research.


Requirements: Have on hand either a draft proposal or a 1/2 to 1-page outline of a research project for which you will be (or might be) applying for a fellowship application.

This workshop is led by Dr. Amanda Perry, who holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from New York University. She has taught literature at NYU and Concordia, and she has multiple academic publications in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes.

The workshop will be offered online via Zoom on Friday, September 18, 2020, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm. You will receive the zoom link and other details in the confirmation email once you submit the form.
