Tips to fill a Fellowship application

3 min readFeb 20, 2021

I describe myself as the Queen of Fellowships because I have done so many in the past few years. All of them have been special and instrumental in helping me grow personally and professionally. Each fellowship has been different and has filled a need at that point in time.

Often I am asked for advice on how to fill up a fellowship application. So I thought to pen down my thoughts and provide guidance on what has worked for me when writing the application or being part of the interview process. Feel free to add your own thoughts and tips in the comments section.
