Dear Class of 2014:
The 2014-2015 Fulbright competition opens on May 1, 2013. Fulbright is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.
JOIN US for an information session! We will hold two sessions at 70 Vernon:
Thursday, May 2 at 3:00-4:00 pm OR Friday, May 3 at 12:00-1:00 pm
If you cannot make one of these sessions, please email me for an individual appointment.
I hope you will consider applying for a U.S. Student Fulbright grant next fall. You can go to www.fulbrightonline.org for program information, country profiles and application procedures. The campus deadline is SEPTEMBER 17, 2013. I have already heard from a number of interested students. If you intend to apply, please register on the Fulbright website after May 1, and be in touch with me before leaving campus for the summer. If you are currently studying abroad, please email me about your interest.
If going abroad for a year after graduation appeals to you, and you want to teach English or do independent research, THINK ABOUT FULBRIGHT!!
