On Monday, March 27th the Center for International Affairs will host a representative from the Fulbright office to meet with staff and faculty interested in learning more about and applying for Fulbright Scholar opportunities.
As you know, Fulbright is the flagship international educational program of the United States. It is administered by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars CIES (www.cies.org), on behalf of the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) https://exchanges.state.gov/
The program is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries through research, collaboration, and teaching.
Our university has been doing more to encourage faculty members to apply for a Fulbrights - and we hope the visit of Dr. Riess will help in that effort.
Faculty members have two ways to meet with Dr. Riess:
- Limited individual 20 minute appointments are available in the morning and afternoon. Faculty can schedule an appointment by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Dr. Riess will also hold an general overview session on Fulbright Scholar Opportunities from 3:30-4:30pm. Faculty do not need to RSVP for the info session, but can contact email@example.com with any questions.
