Fellowship Application Etiquette
There are many lessons to be learned through the process of applying for nationally competitive fellowships. One of the most important is understanding that there is more at stake than just your time. Your recommenders and mentors also invest considerable time and effort on your behalf as does the CUSE Fellowships staff. Notre Dame’s reputation with funding agencies and foundations is also on the line each time we forward or endorse an application.
Therefore, we ask you to give due consideration to all that is involved when you begin an application. We expect that you will approach this venture with commitment to see it through, to meet deadlines, and to show respect for others who support you in this endeavor. We are happy to invest in your success and look forward to working with you throughout the application process.
