CURF is happy to help applicants who are invited to interview for a fellowship prepare through practice interviews. Practice interviews simulate each fellowship’s interview format and pose questions tailored to each fellowship. Practice interviews are conducted as if they are an actual interview, and they are followed by applicant reflection and interviewer feedback.
To request a practice interview, please send the following information to the CURF contact person for the fellowship for which you are a finalist:
- A pdf of your interview invitation
- A pdf of your final application, and the names and contact info for the referees who wrote on your behalf
- The date the interview will take place
- All information you receive regarding the format and content of the interview
If you are studying abroad or are an alumnus/a, practice interviews can be conducted via Skype. Applicants report that practice interviews help them feel more comfortable and confident as they approach their interview.
