To help you prepare a competitive application UB will be hosting a series of Fulbright workshops this spring.  Students will learn more about Fulbright, how to select the country to which they’ll apply and how to propose the required cross-cultural engagement project.  These sessions will be hosted by the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships and UB’s Fulbright Program Advisor, Dr. Colleen Culleton.

Sessions will be held on Wednesdays: February 8th, February 22nd, March 8th and March 29th.  The sessions will be offered from either 9:00am-10:00am or 3:00pm-4:00pm on each of these days.  Students are required to commit to all 4 sessions which includes beginning preparation of the personal statement and project proposal.
