Some may also pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching to begin a teaching career after going into an unrelated field for a time. A Master of Arts in Teaching can be in any topic or subject area in which a teaching degree can be earned, as well as, further specialties. History of the Field Education has evolved over the years, once being a field predominantly for men as women were not educated, then turning to a female dominated area when education became free and compulsory to a certain age. Now, those in education are expected to be highly educated with at the minimum, a Bachelors degree and in many specialties, a Master of Arts Degree.
Officer in two physics minority engagement clubs, I've done a bunch of outreach, volunteered at a cancer hospital for a year, have volunteered as an observer for a cosmological survey for a significant number of nights Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Fluent in Russian, which comes in handy more often than I'd expected.
I take acting and improv classes and actively work on my public speaking skills, so my talks generally receive praise. I have a massive amount of writing experience compared to most applicants. Oh, and two years of full-time work experience as a writer. I have 6 eager recommenders and have encountered a number of cosmologists hearing good things about me from other scientists before meeting me, so I have little doubt that LORs will be my biggest strength.
A few faculty at the schools I'm applying to have mentioned "putting in a word on my behalf" to the admissions committee. Not sure how much impact this can have, but I am a preceptor for calculus-based physics, worked as a math and language arts tutor at public inner city schools for two years.
I also mention that I am good at graphic design in my CV, which should be evident from my talk slides in the portfolio that some schools accept. Let's face it, grad school is my girlfriend. Received two extra fellowship offers after I declined a spot in their program.
The fact that I got about as many acceptances as rejections, in my view, shows that I picked the right range of schools. I reached a little, had one safety that I would be more than happy to attend, and am happy with the result.
As far as fellowships go, I participated in the proposal prep workshops that my school offered for the NSF and had a research advisor comment on it after a couple of grad students commented on my first drafts. FWIW, that school didn't accept me As far as Fulbright, I thought of applying for it three weeks before my school's internal deadline, which is very little time and don't recommend rushing this application.
I had to track down one of my recommenders while he was on a trip in a remote location. The exchange I had with that advisor went a long way in making my application strong.
In the body of the email, I'd supplement my project idea and request for whatever I needed from the professor with a short list of the people I had worked with. It was pretty darn effective when the project idea was specific.
This requires them to enroll you in a special way that isn't a regular enrollment deferral. I believe they also need to get NSF approval, but that doesn't take long.
