You don’t have to be an extraordinary student to get fellowships and pursue your passions. All it takes is strategic planning and a fellowship-writing skillset. "Funded!" tells the story of how an average student went on to win a Fulbright among other scholarships, fellowships, and grants to travel the world and pay for her Ivy League education. It includes breakout boxes with anecdotes from past fellows’ experiences, stories from the field, and advice from mentors. Exercise sheets are sprinkled throughout the text for you to practice and note your ideas as you go. As a step-by-step guide taking you from the phase of dreaming about your project all the way to finding the right fellowship and preparing your application, Funded! makes the process manageable by breaking it into steps that anyone can follow. If you are looking for an inspiring career or want to activate a dormant passion in your work, Funded! will teach you the foundational skills to become the change agent you want to be. It is geared toward individuals who are starting their careers and those who have a vision of setting out to do their own thing. Do you want to take time off from your regular job or even switch your career? Adding a grant, scholarship, or fellowship to your resume can only help your future. "Funded!" tells you how to become the competitive applicant that these scholarship committees look for, including tips from actual Fulbright reviewers. "Funded!" has the feeling of a popular novel, the type of book you’d read on a sunny Sunday as a treat for completing all your chores; yet it is a powerful tool that will leave you with a product to be proud of and a cache of motivation to carry you through to winning the fellowship of your dreams.
