September 19th, 2012 at 4:00 pm – Moorehead Hall 100A

Stop by this information session on the Fulbright U.S. Student Programs held by Lee Rivers of the Institute for International Education. The session will be held at 4:00pm on September 19th in Morehead Hall 100A.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistantships.  A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.  The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
Open to Undergraduate and Graduate Students
