Georgetown Fulbrighter Spotlight

Annie Ornelles (PhD Candidate)

Research - Spain

From Annie Ornelles - "My research is my dissertation research on sociolinguistic identity and language ideologies and practices of rural Galician youth in university contexts."

Application Suggestion:

"In your research statement, be sure to have a clear plan for your research. It will almost always change and evolve over the course of the grant, but it is important to have a defined plan with clear motivation, research timeline, and ideas for the application or significance of your results when finished. Also, give yourself time to write and rewrite your application as you work on it, and have a friend (or two) read your statements. Finally, take advantage of the sample statements that Georgetown provides!"

Advising Corner


Applying for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program includes the requirement that you submit transcripts from all institutions - graduate and undergraduate - where you earned degrees and/or any type of course credit for your work. 

An application will be considered ineligible if you do not fully comply with this transcript requirement. From Fulbright:

  • You must upload one unofficial academic transcript from each post-secondary institution from which you received (or expect to receive) a degree. Additional transcripts should be uploaded for coursework and grades not reflected on degree-granting transcripts.
  • Make sure that the document that you submit clearly shows your name, the name of the institution, and appears as an academic record that is organized chronologically--with course dates, titles, credits and grades. Screenshots of online academic portals (e.g. a course schedule) will not be accepted․
  • Graduate-level students who do not include undergraduate transcripts will be considered ineligible.
  • Consult the Transcript Upload Instructions page for more detailed information.

Georgetown Transcripts

For Georgetown, please order an OFFICIAL COPY of your transcript/s using the service Parchment. 

Please note: The Fulbright portal has had some technical difficulty with official Georgetown transcripts that are uploaded directly as the Parchment-delivered digital .pdf. 

To avoid this problem, you should upload a high-quality scanned .pdf that you make of your official Georgetown transcript/s. You can do this by either 1) scanning the paper Parchment transcript/s you received in the mail or in person OR 2) printing out the digital Parchment transcript/s you received and then scanning the printout/s. 

Do not upload into the Fulbright application portal the .pdf you received directly from Parchment.

Unofficial transcripts, such as a printout from MyAccess, are not acceptable for the purposes of a Fulbright application.

Please visit us at the center if you need any assistance with scanning.
