And more than anything, re-read and re-write those essays (with the help of literally everyone) until they‚re perfect. As for advice, I would say that the most important thing is to find a project that you personally would love the opportunity to pursue. Find something you love, or a place you love, then during the course of your research add in the specifics that will make it so that this project can only be done by you, in the country you are applying for.
If you love what you are investigating, it will be easier to stay motivated and persuasive throughout the long (very long! Find something unique, but make sure that it is something that you enjoy, not just something you think the judges will like.
At first it can seem a little overwhelming, and to be honest, a bit humbling to watch as essays which I put so much of myself into, were severely edited and changed.
However, by about the fourth incarnation, I finally saw why these changes were being made and how it was helping my application to be stronger and more competitive.
My advice for future Fulbright applicants is to not be discouraged by the writing process, it is long and at times rather severe, but, it is well worth putting yourself (and your writing) out there as the reward is nothing short of life changing.

At this point (for me, at the end of my junior year), you have already done most of your background research, and you know the topic well enough to start searching out an affiliate - which can take FOREVER.Remember, you are trying to get someone who has never met you to commit to being an advisor to your year-long project; it may help if you offer to do something for them in return, such as volunteering at their organization, or as a tutor or conversation partner at their university.You learn this this this software’s in the graduation.Write down any internship experience and publication if you have regarding this.
