Students and faculty interested in learning more about the Fulbright Program are invited to attend a week of workshops, sponsored by the Office of Competitive Fellowships.

The virtual workshops, scheduled Monday, April 25, through Friday, April 29, will provide more information about grants for research, creative study or teaching assistantships abroad.

The week will kick off with a virtual visit from the Institute of International Education. Fulbright staff will present general information about the program’s history, eligibility, award types, award benefits and application components and tips.

Faculty also are invited to a special workshop geared toward their opportunities for involvement with Fulbright. RSVP online for the Fulbright faculty workshop.

“The Fulbright Student program has endless possibilities,” said Chessica Oetjens, Office of Competitive Fellowships program coordinator. “We are finding that a lot of our students don’t even know these wonderful opportunities exist and our office is here to walk them through the entire application process.”

Established in 1946, the U.S. Fulbright Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
