"I participated in the Startalk 2013 summer language program at CSUN, and I had a fantastic time there. I would like to announce that, thanks in no small measure to the experience there and the addition of the program to my application, I have been awarded a Fulbright ETA to Russia for this upcoming academic year! I believe my participation in your program added a lot of weight to my application."
