Georgetown Fulbrighter Spotlight

Anya Lee Wahal (SFS'23)

Research - India

Anya Wahal stands in front of a stone wall with red, green, and yellow design.

From Anya Lee Wahal (SFS'23) - "I've been interviewing and meeting with people in two of Delhi's low income communities to learn more about their experiences with poor water quality and to identify the disconnects between policy and practice. I spend most of my time doing fieldwork chatting with aunties, meeting new folks, and capturing the different water challenges facing communities."

Application Suggestion:

"Have people you love and trust look over your application and provide feedback! Doing that really helped me put forth the best application possible."

Advising Corner


Here are some ideas for getting started with the Fulbright application:

  1. Visit Georgetown's 2024 Fulbright Overview Recording.
  2. Enroll in the Fulbright Canvas Course.
  3. Research the type of Fulbright award you hope to pursue and in which location.
  4. Learn more about eligibility and the application components for Fulbright.


  1. Visit the Center for Research & Fellowships (3607 O Street NW, Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM ET) to review examples of Fulbright personal statements and statements of grant purpose.
  2. Review our online worksheets to help you get started with your statement of grant purpose for a research, study, or English teaching assistant grant.


  1. Identify your 3 Fulbright recommenders as soon as possible! Review “Instructions For Study/Research Recommendation Writers” and “Instructions For English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Recommendation Writers” to get a better sense of what writers should address. 
  2. Determine if you will need a Foreign Language Evaluation form and, if so, identify an individual to complete it, particularly, according to Fulbright, “a professional language teacher, preferably a university professor.”
