And Fulbright Says...

Sometimes I wonder it is possible to have too many good things happen in a lifetime? Yesterday, I got an email that my Fulbright application has been passed onto the next level of competition.
I am pleased to inform you that the National Screening Committee of the Institute of International Education (IIE) has recommended you for a grant under the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the academic year 2008-09.
Now, my application will be sent to Argentina, and they will decide whether or not they want me.

It's a gorgeous day outside--beautifully icy.

Snow in Shippensburg
I don't want to get my hopes up because passing the first round by no means guarentees a grant, although it is a significant step toward getting one. In some ways, I am surprised. I was worried that going to a relatively unknown school like Shippensburg would be harmful to me, but apparently not. I guess those laborious hours working on the application were worth it.

I am still in a pleasing shock.


  1. congrats x 1000! what will america do without jenn bly here though? you're going to come home with a hot argentian man with hot muscles and sexy voice and whose wish will be to make you happy.
