In honor of our internal Watson nomination deadline today, here’s a treat–a recent interview with Linnea Burnham ‘14.5, a Watson Fellow in 2015-16: http://heritageradionetwork.org/podcast/watson-fellow-linnea-burnham/   . Who knew there was a radio show in Brooklyn focused on cheese?  It’s a great listen and you can learn a lot about cheese in different cultural traditions as well as glean more about what a Watson year is like.

For those applying for Watson, nomination, the Watson Foundation is running a webinar on Friday, Sept. 9 from 3pm-4pm EST. You can get more info and register through this link. Below the video there is a sign up for the Watson Informational Webinar.

Reminder: the internal deadline for nomination applications is Tuesday, Sept. 13 at noon. No late applications will be accepted. Please see go.middlebury.edu/watson for materials needed and the nomination process. (No, you do not have to have submitted a preliminary application back in April or over the summer to apply–just submit the requested application materials by the internal deadline to be considered. Yes, I will endeavor to read and respond to drafts I receive next week.)

For those intending to apply for a Fulbright grant this fall, we need to revise our submission process for our August 18 “intent to apply” deadline. Here’s what we would like you to do:

Send the following to fellowships@middlebury.edu by end of day (midnight) on Aug 18:

  • Word attachment for your two essays (statement of grant purpose and personal essay; you can include both in a single word doc) and (if you can manage this) a single pdf of your application screens in section B. (To do this in Embark, you need to hit the preview button to open the page in Adobe and save to a pdf. Next combine these pdfs into a single pdf file in Adobe Acrobat or Preview. If you can’t combine, sending pdfs of the individual screens is fine. If you have trouble creating a pdf, try printing the page and save as a pdf through that process. And if you just can’t manage it, send the the essays as word docs at the very least!)
  • For the subject line, use “Fulbright Intent to Apply Materials”

For those candidates who do this by end of day (midnight) on August 18, we will order your transcript for you free of charge and provide feedback on your essays within approximately two weeks. We will send you a pdf scan of your official Middlebury transcript to upload to your Fulbright application before the internal deadline. 

You do not need to worry about letters of recommendation, language evaluations or affiliation letters for the Aug 18 deadline. If you do have your letter of affiliation and can attach a copy of it, that’s great, but not essential.

You can still apply through Middlebury if you miss the August 15 intent to apply deadline, however you will need to order your own transcript and we cannot guarantee essay feedback, though we will try.  All applications must be completed and submitted by Middlebury’s internal deadline of noon on Sept 19 to move forward with Fulbright submission process. Any questions, please email fellowships@middlebury.edu .
