The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.  With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually — 1,200 of which are for U.S. scholars chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential.  The Fulbright Scholar Program offers teaching, research or combination teaching/research awards in over 125 countries for the 2016-2017 academic year.  There are awards in 45 specific academic disciplines, and several awards are open to all disciplines.  U.S. citizenship is required.

The Fulbright Scholar workshop will be hosted by the Center for Research Program Development and Enrichment (CRPDE). This event will include a program overview focusing on strategies for submitting a successful application to be presented by the Council for International Exchange Scholars (CIES), and University policies and procedures regarding prestigious fellowships, to be presented by the Provost’s Office.
