Fulbright Application Consulting


I was awarded a Fulbright Artist Grant for the 2015-2016 academic year from the U.S. State Department in creative writing and spent the year in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a place I had traveled to with Vermont College of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. I had fallen in love with the language and was motivated by the high value Slovenia places on ART, because that’s what’s important to me!

If you’re interested in applying for a Fulbright, I have started working with students on their applications. The next deadline for the student application is October 2018, but start planning NOW! You can email me at kmckenna@slovenialit.com.

A Fulbright Grant gives you the freedom to explore a new culture and become involved with projects that open conversations between people and nations. Being a “cultural ambassador” is a remarkable experience, because you are given the freedom to connect, create and engage in your own way.

But the application process is arduous. My mission is to help break it down for you so that you can have the opportunity to take part in cultural (and artistic, if that’s your thing!) exchange.

I am currently taking on more students to help you navigate:

  • The Fulbright application process
  • Developing your project
  • Choosing a country and affiliation
  • Writing your project proposal


Here are some Dartmouth articles that talk a bit about the Fulbright (and, embarrassingly, me!–please note, my married name, Rossier, is in use here):
