HELPFUL RESOURCES: PREPARING A COMPETITIVE FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION

The Fellowships Office of the National Research Council is often made aware of other sources that provide assistance with the preparation of competitive applications for national fellowship competitions such as the Ford Foundation Fellowships. Fellowship applicants have informed us that they have found the following publications to be particularly helpful (reprinted with permission; all in .pdf format):

by Ernesto Chávez, Miroslava Chávez-García and Luis Alvarez; as published in the August 2009 newsletter of the Organization of American Historians

by Cynthia Verba; a publication of The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University

by Michael Kiparsky; Chronicle Careers, The Chronicle of Higher Education
