This work normally is concentrated in the first five weeks of fall term for Fulbright and DAAD awards, and during the first five weeks of winter term for the Boren/NSEP awards.  At the organizational meeting for each scholarship cycle, committee members will divide up the list of applicants, such that each committee member writes the committee report on one or more applicants.
