Alysia Mann Carey, Doctoral Student

"UChicagoGRAD has been a wonderful resource during my time here at UChicago. In addition to helping me find and complete fellowships, personal statements, and internship opportunities, they have been a friendly, encouraging, and supportive group of people that care greatly about the graduate experience on campus and beyond."

Kevin Blakinship, Doctoral Student

"I can’t emphasize enough the importance of relying on internal university grant coordinators and other staff whose job description is to track best practices for successful applications to Fulbright-Hays. They will be able to give you specific, actionable advice on how to play to your strengths and shore up your weaknesses to put together the best portfolio."

MeeSoh Bossard, Master's Student

"I could not have gotten to this point without UChicagoGRAD's guidance and time, and I am grateful to you."
