The Committee on Foreign Scholarships will host an informal meeting for students interested in applying for major foreign scholarships and fellowships this afternoon from 4:30-5:30pm in Rm 1-133.
The programs that will be discussed include the British Marshall, Marshall-Sherfield, Rhodes, Churchill and Fulbright Scholarships, as well as the DAAD and Robert Bosch Fellowships. Coordinators for each of these programs will outline the applications procedure, and students who have won these awards will describe their experiences. Literature will also be available.
MIT has historically done well in these competitions. This year, Institute students won four Marshall Scholarships and a Churchill Scholarship, and the Fulbright Commission has recommended four students for scholarships pending funding availability. Last year, MIT students won three Marshalls, a Rhodes and two Fulbrights.
