In short, this book is written from the point of view of people who have actually done a Fulbright. The author is clearly very supportive of Fulbright and shares everything possible for those who are serious about the program to win a grant and have a successful experience abroad. I found it a very valuable read.
I would caution students against relying too heavily on the sample essays, some of which are a bit dated at this point. Sample essays are rather controversial and should be taken with a grain of salt; one never knows whether an applicant was selected for a Fulbright because of a great essay or in spite of a mediocre one.
An interesting read about the Fulbright Scholarship program and the kind of ideas-driven people who make up the Fulbright community. Lots of personal stories from the field, and lots of advice about doing independent projects oversees, even those that aren’t Fulbright. My favorite chapter was “The Habits of Successful Fulbrighters.” Wise words for anyone trying to push their ideas out into the world.
As a Fulbright alumni, it is refreshing and uplifting to read about the many other stories of my colleagues. I keep a copy next to my desk, and open it when I need a little encouragement. After reading the Zen of Fulbright, I feel even more apart of the Fulbright community and am inspired to pay forward my Fulbright experience. I highly recommend this book to Fulbright scholars from all walks of life.
