Fulbright Information Session for Graduate Students

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, and administered by the Institute for International Education (IIE), offers diverse opportunities for research and cultural exchange for current U.S. students and recent graduates. Over the course of 8-12 months, Fulbright fellows are immersed in the culture and daily life of the country of their choice. Successful applicants to this program will show an interest in promoting cultural ambassadorship and will have limited prior experience in their particular country of application (less than six months, not counting undergraduate study abroad).

Time:                     2:00pm – 3:00pm EST
