Draft Review

CURF is happy to review drafts for fellowship personal statements and other written application components, if permitted by the fellowship foundation. CURF has a specific process for Fulbright draft review which is outlined at the bottom of this page. All other drafts should be submitted as Word Docs via this webform, and will be returned to you by email with comments on the document. Please name the document YOUR LAST NAME_Fellowship you are applying for, and at the start of the document please include:

  • Your name
  • The name of the fellowship
  • The full text of the essay prompt
  • The word or page limit for each essay
  • Application Deadline

To guarantee feedback prior to a fellowship deadline, drafts must be submitted at least 2 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, Mitchell, and Thouron do not permit draft review.

Fulbright Draft Review

To submit Fulbright drafts to CURF for review, please use this webform. 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 (July 14, 2019). 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.
