The National Scholarship Office has scheduled several Fulbright Information Sessions this spring for those who are interested in learning more about the Fulbright Student Scholarship (http://us.fulbrightonline.org). These sessions are hosted by units across both campuses, and each session is open to anyone who wants to attend. Unless otherwise noted, each session will include information on both the English Teaching Assistant and Independent Research/Study opportunities.
Serious candidates for the Fulbright Student Scholarship should have strong academic credentials (3.0 GPA or higher), international interests, and appropriate language skills for the host country and proposed project (if planning to conduct independent research or a creative project). If potential candidates do not presently have the appropriate language level, they should have a plan to acquire the appropriate level before they would commence their project. Current undergraduates who will complete their bachelor’s degree by August 2016 are eligible to apply, as are graduate students and recent alumni. Candidates for the US Student Fulbright program must be US citizens.
Additional information sessions are being scheduled, so check back here to see when and where they will be offered.
