Draft Review

CURF is happy to review drafts for fellowship personal statements and other written application components, if permitted by the fellowship foundation. To submit a draft fellowship essay for review, please upload a .doc or .docx file via the Fellowships Draft Review process.

Drafts must be submitted at least 3 weeks in advance of the fellowship deadline (though earlier is strongly recommended). CURF can only guarantee one round of written feedback, but may be able to offer additional feedback if time permits.

Please note:

  • Rhodes does not permit draft review of your personal statement
  • Mitchell does not permit editing of your personal statement
  • Thouron does not permit draft review of any portion of your application

Additional notes on Fulbright U.S. Student Program Draft Review

Prior to submitting drafts, please complete the relevant sections of CURF's Fulbright Self-Edit Checklist (which you'll find on the first page of Canvas Module 3). Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit Fulbright drafts by the Priority Target Date for Draft Review in July. By doing so, applicants opt-in for enhanced writing support (though CURF will continue to offer draft review after that date). Please review this document for additional details
