A Fulbright Faculty Workshop will take place virtually 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 27, and a virtual Fulbright Student Workshop will be 2 p.m. Thursday, April 29.

The events, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Office of the Competitive Fellowships, will include an introduction to the program, including opportunities for teaching, research and flexible initiatives in more than 125 countries, as well as tips on crafting a competitive application.

The workshop for students will be hosted by representatives from Fulbright, who will share details on the student programs available that provide grants for research projects abroad and for English teaching assistant programs. Register online in advance for the Fulbright Student Workshop.

UToledo faculty will learn about the program from former Fulbright recipients, who will be available to answer questions from faculty and administrators interested in the program. RSVP online for the Fulbright Faculty Workshop.

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