Thank you so much for your application for a _______ Fellowship. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a place in the program. I wanted to let you know that your application was read with great care and appreciation. It is through the vibrancy and commitment of work like yours that the program is able to depend on an applicant pool of immense talent. Every year, after reading the submissions, all of us wish we had more fellowships to offer.
You know the rest.
