Faculty members interested in the Fulbright Scholar Program are invited to a Fulbright Faculty Workshop Wednesday, April 10, in Memorial Field House.

Debra Egan, the director of the Scholar Program of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, will give two presentations from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in Memorial Field House Room 1460. There is no charge for the workshop, and Egan will be available after the presentations to meet with potential applicants.

The presentations will include information about teaching and research opportunities in 125 countries, advice about selecting countries for application, tips on preparing the Fulbright application, and how UT can host visiting foreign Fulbright scholars.

Established in 1946, the Fulbright program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. About 1,200 faculty and professionals travel abroad annually through the U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program.
