Fulbright Application Development Workshops for Juniors

Posted by Tim on December 5, 2016 in Academics, Graduate School Programs, Honors College Scholarships, Scholarship Opportunities

Would you like to spend a year after graduation working and teaching abroad?  The Fulbright provides funded opportunities for undergraduates to travel for a year after they graduate.  Students apply for a Fulbright grant to teach English or conduct research abroad.  There are more than 150 countries to choose from.*

Fulbright applications are due almost a full year before your dates of travel. In order to travel the year after you graduate, you’ll have to submit your application in September of your senior year so now’s the time to start thinking about your application!

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.

To be considered for this program, students must complete the online application by 5pm EST on Monday, January 30th:
