When applying to graduate school, I consider it significant that I'm applying for external fellowships (since, in theory, it means the grad school may not have to fund me). Presently on my CV, I have a section for "national awards", and there I list Blah blah blah award 1 blah blah blah award 2 blah blah blah fellowship (2016) (pending) Would this be correct? Would "applied for" be a better term? I won't hear back about the fellowship until shortly after I hear about grad school acceptances, so there's no opportunity to change it once I hear back. Thoughts?
