By Erin Crews | Emory Report | April 8, 2013

The Office of International Affairs is offering two free workshops on Thursday, April 11 for faculty and staff interested in applying for Fulbright grants.  

Peter Vanderwater, director of outreach for the Fulbright Scholar Program, will be on campus to give a presentation on Fulbright Scholar grants for U.S. faculty and professionals and to answer questions about the program.  

"Emory has an excellent track record when it comes to placing faculty and staff in Fulbright programs, and these workshops are a great opportunity to learn more about the application process," says Philip Wainwright, vice provost for international affairs. "Fulbright experiences are incredibly rewarding, and I would encourage anyone who is interested to apply."

Attendees will learn about teaching and research overseas, get tips on preparing Fulbright grant applications, find out about opportunities to host visiting Fulbright scholars at Emory and get advice on making contacts abroad.  

Seats are limited, and registration is encouraged. The first session will take place in White Hall Room 208 from noon to 1:30 p.m., and boxed lunches will be served. Register for the lunch session.

The second session will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Oxford Road Building Presentation Room. Register for this session.  

The deadline for applications to the 2014-2015 Fulbright Scholar Program is Aug. 1, 2013. The program provides approximately 800 teaching and research grants each year to U.S. faculty and professionals in a variety of fields. Grants are available in more than 125 countries worldwide.
