C2D2 Highlights

by Michael Laughter | July 2017

Fulbright Personal Statement Review

Kathryn Meehan Quinto, hosted C2D2's first-ever Fulbright Personal Statement Review session on July 11th. This event brought together professionals from around campus to review and offer comments to students applying for a Fulbright this year. Each of the nine students who attended received meaningful commentary from three different readers. We're especially pleased that we were able to meet student "where they were." Four of our participants joined us from summer work or travel and interacted with their reviewers electronically.

Many thanks to our C2D2 colleagues who served as readers: Patty Bazrod, Rob Rogers, and Richard South.  And to April for her support in pre-event logistics and to Scott and Russell, who ensured that we had the technology to serve our remote students. Campus partners for this event included readers from the Comm Center, the Stamps President's Scholars office, the Nunn School of International Affairs, and the Office of International Education.
