General Interview Suggestions

Many scholarships or fellowships include an interview or two as part of the application process. Typically, selection committees make preliminary decisions based solely on the written application and invite only the most promising candidates to be interviewed. The interview is your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to think on your feet, show your grasp of current events and the latest developments in your field, and impress the committee with your warm personality. Generally, the interview will be scheduled to take place within a week or two of notification, so it is important to begin preparing even before you know that you are a finalist.
