Shivum Bharill (CAS'17) researched health care competition in the European Union. He focused on consolidation in the French and German hospital sectors, and transatlantic collaboration on antitrust.

Application Suggestion:

"One way to think about host country engagement: What are some things you already do regularly or enjoy that you could see yourself participating in/contributing to when you arrive?" 

Advising Corner


  • THINK about what expertise you bring to your research project. What work have you done in your area of interest already - inside and outside of the classroom? What knowledge do you have and what do you still need to learn?
  • DEVELOP a list of specific reasons why the location you have chosen interests you and is the right place for your particular research project.
  • BEGIN developing your research question/s, outlining what method/s you will use to approach them, and drafting a timeline.
  • CONSULT with professors who can help further situate your research question/s within the broader discipline, as well as offer their ideas about the feasibility of your research project design. Project feasibility is an important part of research-focused applications.
  • ASK your professors for suggestions about locations for your research affiliation - a place (or places) that may provide, for example, community connections, data, expertise, guidance about research ethics and policies, and other resources. Review closely each country's Fulbright landing page to learn about all location-specific requirements, including for affiliation letters.
  • VISIT Georgetown's library website to search for books about research methods. And schedule a research consultation with a subject area librarian.
  • SPEND time at the Center for Research & Fellowships (3607 O Street, NW, 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday to Friday) reviewing example statements of grant purpose for Fulbright research projects.
  • ENROLL in our Canvas course for more information about research awards and affiliations.

A future edition will look at proposing a collaborative research project (i.e., where Fulbright applicants propose joining other researchers working on an existing project)!

Transcript Tip

When applying for Fulbright later this year, you will need to upload a copy of your most current official Georgetown transcript - with your full name and the university's name on it. Please use Parchment, not MyAccess. Note: To avoid formatting issues, print, scan, and upload a copy of your Parchment transcript. Do not upload the .pdf file you received directly from Parchment.
