Revising your Fellowship or Scholarship Essay

Revise, revise, revise. Nobel Laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer once said, "There is no such thing as good writing–only good rewriting." You are strongly encouraged to establish a relationship early with a writing consultant, preferably an advanced graduate student, in the College Writing Center.

Seek critical feedback on your essay from professors and mentors, the Fellowships Coordinator, a writing consultant, and friends who know you well. Consider their comments and suggestions as you revise your work.
