I still haven't heard anything regarding the results or the email I sent last Thursday. Anyone else have any ideas?

No one responded to the e-mail. Am dissapointed! There is nothing wrong in them giving us a brief update like 'we have picked a winner' or something along that line...... Evil or Very Mad

To be honest, I think they probably don't have the funds this year and don't know how to break the news to the applicants. Otherwise, they've notified the winner, but they are waiting for a confirmation from the winner before announcing it publicly. Else, perhaps something happened to Colleen, or someone in the DTRW committee. Who knows, they could be in the hospital with a broken leg and not have gotten a chance to look through the applications yet... just some thoughts. Else, the whole thing was a big scam to get people to buy the book. =)

Finally got a response from the email i sent.....Below is their answer

Hi Kunbi,

We apologize for the delay in announcing the winner, but we had so many excellent applications this year that deliberations lasted longer than usual. The winner will be announced this week (most likely tomorrow) via an email to all applicants; more information about the winner will also be posted on the website. Thanks again for your patience and your interest in the fellowship!

Best,
The DTRW Fellowship Committee


Good luck to the winner

I just got an email from Colleen (I am not the winner), so something should be posted on the website soon.

She said they received over 500 applications and encouraged me to apply again next year. She didn't say who the winner is or when they would be announced, but I would imagine it would be soon since they have made their decision already.

Thanks kbittner! It's good to know that Colleen is saying something, even though it is not directly to the boards.
