What is the difference between the summary of proposed project and informal essay?
The summary of proposed project is a short paragraph describing the issue you would like to report on, why you’ve selected that issue, and what you hope to achieve with your reporting. It shouldn’t exceed 1,000 characters. The informal essay includes your reasons for applying for the fellowship, your proposed project and a plan for completion clearly outlined (including your expected project timeline and potential obstacles, if any), the significance and timeliness of your topic, and the potential impact of the project. The informal essay shouldn’t exceed 1,000 words.
