MEETING PREPARATION

If you are even just thinking about the Fabulous Fulbright, go immediately to
http://www.smith.edu/fulbright/intro.php
to grasp the basics, whatever your year.
Tip: You really ought to think ahead and start planning right now.

Students currently abroad should especially pay attention to this advice.
Being abroad is a great advantage in terms of being able to make the host-country contacts so vital for Fulbright and other fellowship applications.

Being on campus has the advantage of proximity to professors willing to guide you, and having time to do a small research project of your own.
Prepare for the meeting — even virtually — by perusing
