Janet Myers presents at the National Association of Fellowship Advisors

Janet Myers, associate professor of English and director of national and international fellowships, attended the biannual meeting of the National Association of Fellowship Advisors in Chicago July 13-16.

Myers participated in a four-person panel titled “Advising Academics: A Panel Discussion,” which focused on strategies fellowship advisors can use to effectively balance administrative and faculty roles.  In addition to attending panels by fellowship advisors from colleges and universities throughout the U.S., Myers had the opportunity to hear from representatives from the major scholarship competitions, including the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Truman, Udall, Goldwater and Fulbright, and to talk with representatives from United Kingdom and Irish universities about their programs.
