Resumes or Curriculum Vitae

Most fellowships and scholarships do require a resume or a CV. Generally, it is important at this stage in your life to develop one regardless of your post-graduation plans. While obviously your resume preparation and presentation will vary depending on your ambition, there are some sound strategies for preparing good ones.

As one former Fulbright National Screening member commented, CV’s “…probably received less weight in our considerations, although good style and a tight, informative piece of writing are plus factors.” (2000 Fulbright Manual, 9)
