Writing Fellowship Proposals and Essays

Think of your fellowship essays, for both national and Yale-only competitions, as part of a larger whole. They should complement, clarify, and enhance the other elements of your application (e.g., résumé, letters of recommendation).

Please refer to our handout "Writing a Fellowship Proposal" for some general advice and for some questions you should ask yourself to get your pen (or keyboard!) going.
