The Wexner Graduate Fellowship Program Application Form consists of two parts. The first asks for short answers to questions that can be coded for quantitative analysis; the second part asks for much longer answers to two multi-part questions that probe the life, leadership experiences, and future career goals of applicants. The resulting highly personal and often deeply revealing essays form the basis for this paper, a qualitative analysis of the factors that shape Wexner Graduate Fellowship applicants.
