“Your Way to U.S. Graduate Admissions: How to Write Convincing Essays” @FEAC-EducationUSA

On Thursday, April 19, the EducationUSA-affiliated Fulbright Educational Advising Center hosted a special workshop titled “Your Way to U.S. Graduate Admissions: How to Write Convincing Essays”, coordinated by Fulbright ETA Bridget Kelly (University of Indiana Bloomington).
During the workshop, which lasted over an hour, Bridget helped the 17 participants – both prospective Fulbright applicants and those considering an independent application - grasp the differences between the study/research objectives essay and the personal statement and start developing effective writing strategies for both.
Her engaging presentation provided the attendees with expert tips on writing a strong essay, highlighting the importance of asking the right questions both in building a convincing personal narrative and in defining one’s study/research objectives.
Prospective applicants acquainted themselves with effective ways to make their case by looking at excerpts from successful Fulbright applications. Bridget was happy to take questions throughout the workshop, providing participants with valuable tips on brainstorming and writing strategies, to help them approach more confidently the Fulbright essays and personal statements alike.
