Faculty members are encouraged to send the names of ambitious and talented rising seniors who would benefit from a year of study, research, or teaching English abroad after graduation to the fellowships and grants office, according to John Orr, assistant to the provost. Students will be contacted and given assistance in starting the Fulbright application process over the summer so that their files can be finalized at the start of the fall semester. For more information or to pass along names, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 7857.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program currently awards approximately 1,900 grants annually in all fields of study, and operates in more than 140 countries worldwide. For more information go to http://us.fulbrightonline.org/.
