UCSB Graduate Division Digital Fellowship Library

(back to main Funding Resources page)

Are you starting the fellowship application process? Are you wondering how to write a personal statement versus a research proposal? The UCSB Graduate Division Digital Fellowship Library is a resource to guide you and ensure your success! The Digital Fellowship Library contains samples of successful fellowship applications from your peers and features a wide variety of fellowship proposals. You can filter by award name, award year, field of study, discipline, and document type.

How to Navigate the Library
The "grouping" function allows you to organize the entries by field of study, discipline, or year the award was won for your convenience. You can also filter the entries by award name, award year, field of study, discipline, and document type, so that you only see results that are relevant to you!

For example, if your field is Chemical Engineering, just click on the "Filter" option at the top of the table, select "Field of Study" from the dropdown menu, and toggle "Chemical Engineering" to "ON." If you would like to see Fulbright grants for a specific region or country, click on "Filter," select "Host Country" from the dropdown menu, and toggle "Europe" and/or "France" and/or "Germany" to "ON." You can combine as many filters as you'd like to view.
