Receiving the News

8 08 2010

After conducting research, corresponding with contacts in Nepal to secure invitation letters, getting letters of recommendation, writing and submitting my grant proposal in August 2009, waiting on pins and needles during the first and second review rounds, and all the details involved in preparing a Fulbright Scholar Grant application, I gratefully received the acceptance letter in late spring 2010. It was a lengthy process, but it was good preparation for life in Nepal and all the things I’d still need to do before leaving. Following the acceptance letter was a continual stream of emails and letters from Nepal and Washington DC with forms to sign, medical exam requirements, travel requirements, packing hints, and suggestions of what to do and what not to do before leaving and while in Nepal. I still had so many questions, which is why I’m thankful that the Fulbright Commission (through the State Department) sponsor a summer pre-departure orientation in Washington DC. Whew!
