U.S. Student Fulbright Program Information Session
Thursday, March 14, 12:45-2:00pm, NVC 14-240
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.
Representatives from the U.S. Student Fulbright Program will visit Baruch College next week to give an information and guidance session.
Annually, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program fully-funds 1,800 graduating seniors and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, to conduct research, and to teach English worldwide. Fulbright is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship international exchange program and is one of the most respected and esteemed programs in the world. This spotlight presentation provides a detailed overview of the Fulbright program, discusses the differences between research and English Teaching Assistantship grants, offers advice on selecting a Fulbright destination, and reviews the Fulbright competition timeline and major application components.
During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with, and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens and include: graduating seniors and recent bachelor’s degree recipients; master’s and doctoral candidates; young professionals , including writers, creative and performing artists, journalists and those in law, business and other professional fields.
