For those just joining, please note that the presentation slides and recording will be made available for your reference later.
Can you share tips/ resources on reaching out to POs?
can you share the names of LISTSERVS?
Thanks for the information! Is there a way to make an individual appointment with a Hanover staff member for help?
If your project is related to a “hot topic,” is that important or useful to highlight? If it is, how do you navigate incorporating that contextual information into your proposal?
Univeristy of Illinois Fellowship Finder
Any thoughts on the differences between fellowship or grant applications? How should we approach these differently?
Follow up: Anyone planning to apply for an external funding opportunity and is actively preparing a draft, please call Robyn Kotzker
Can you talk a little bit about how reviewers do the review process? Is there anything that applicants need to remember as they prepare their application?
It is important for funders to understand the significance - both in the discipline, but also more broadly. Any thoughts on that?
Question about budgets: is economizing seen as a sign as amateurish? Eg. low cost accommodations, etc? Or appreciated?
Also, as far as feasibility is concerned, if the applicant is overly ambitious, can it adversely affect the application?
Thanks! Follow up Q: is there a "cheatsheet" to get a sense of average costs for travels/trips, etc? How can we get a sense of what is appropriate?
Many fellowships require participants to have an American citizenship. Are there any fellowships that you can recommend for international graduate students, apart from the ones already mentioned in the presentation?
The Graduate School External Fellowship Database on our website has a filter that shows which fellowships will accept applications from international students. It's not an exhaustive list, but it's a start.
Also for Green card holders
Thank you so much!
