Graduating with an MS in May, an independent historical research project on my brain, and time. What should I do NOW while I'm still a student? [more inside]
How difficult is it, really, to get a post-doctoral fellowship? I'm kind of panicking about it, so any reassurance would be helpful; that said, it would also be helpful to know if this is a totally unrealistic pipe-dream at this point, so I can start to think about other options. [more inside]

Anyone have any experience with the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship? I'm applying (this week!) and it was indicated to me that almost all applicants go through an interview process. Any tips, suggestions, ideas on how to sell myself? (Additional info: I'm a doctoral candidate in English, focusing on contemporary world literature from places of long term conflict. I've heard that literature folks are not as well received because they don't "Focus on humanitarian projects.")

What are some interesting non-academic fellowships out there? [more inside]
I'm Jewish, so at least I've got a good explanation for why this baffles me so much. I'm trying to figure out what Christians (particularly the Evangelical variety) mean when they use the word "fellowship". Sometimes it seems as though the word is simply being used as follows its dictionary definition of amity, friendliness, togetherness, commonality, etc. But I'm increasingly hearing Christians use it as an intransitive verb, which puzzles me to no end. What could it possibly mean "to fellowship"? My dictionary also indicates that the word can refer to communion (uncapitalized, so I had assumed that just meant a secular kind of togetherness) - does "fellowship" mean to take Communion together? Or does it just refer to hanging out with other Christians? Anyone out there who can cast some light on this for a poor benighted Jew?
