From Áine Crinion (SFS'22): "As a binational business grantee, my grant consists of doing an internship for Volaris, an ultra-low-cost airline based out of Mexico, and taking master's classes. Since I work on the Investor Relations team, my manager and I were given a tour of Mexico City’s new airport a couple of weeks ago so we could discuss with investors how its opening will impact our operations."
"As you’re starting your application, I’d recommend writing out a list of 'why' for your program or country (why me, why this country, why now) and asking yourself if every part of your application answers one of those questions. Not only did it help me write more effective essays when applying, but having a clear 'why' helped me figure out what my overall goals for this year were once I arrived."
