Information to share about the Fulbright Program!
The Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program. This year there are over 50 awards available in the Western Hemisphere: Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada. These opportunities allow faculty and professionals, at all stages of their career, to teach and/or conduct research in their discipline. They will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, April 5, at 2pm EDT to review these opportunities, and encourage registrants to submit questions in advance.
