Other Sources of Funding

Md Monzur Rabbi"I had never heard of a Fulbright and thought I'd give it a try. If I had known how competitive it is, I might not have applied. But I had been thinking about a dispute resolution center for a while and saw this as an opportunity to advance the idea towards reality...When I saw 'Congratulations' as the subject line of an incoming email, I had trouble concentrating on the rest of the meeting. It is such enormous honor."
