"Writing this guide was a deeply collaborative endeavor. We want future Fulbrighters to begin their experience with the lessons that we learned during our time abroad. Our hope is that this knowledge will lead to stronger applications and more productive projects, and that these will in turn inspire future generations to dream bigger and reach even farther than those before them. This is the guide we wish we had when we began our own Fulbright Scholarships!"
