Starting, changing, or jump-starting your career? Whether you’re applying for a Fulbright, for a summer residency, as a writer-in-residence, for an MFA, to J-school, or for a journalism grant, you’ll learn tips and tricks for success. Learn how to fund a trip, fund your reporting, fund your writing, or fund your space – on someone else’s dime. This class will cover how to craft a successful project proposal, work plan, or personal statement; how to solicit and draft letters of recommendation; and how to make the most of your time during and after your fellowship whether it’s one week or one year. If you want to workshop your proposal, please come prepared with copies (not required; you can learn much by participating in critique). All students will receive a packet of winning applications and a resource list of fellowships.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
