RE: 2008-2009 Fulbright Study and Research Awards for UF Students
Graduating seniors and graduate students who want to do research or other
projects overseas can learn about successful strategies to receive a
prestigious Fulbright award at the Fulbright orientation session on
Thursday, 19 April 2007 during fourth period (10:40 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.) in
219 Dauer Hall (the Ruth McQuown Room).
Fulbright awards for graduate research at the MA and Ph.D. level, as well as
for graduating seniors, cover travel and living expenses for a year in any
of over 140 countries. Students in any field are encouraged to apply.
Examples of successful applications can be reviewed in the Honors Office,
140 Tigert Hall.
Applicants for a Fulbright award must be U.S. citizens, have an outstanding
GPA, have a record of community service, and be interested in international
scholarship. The Fulbright campus application deadline at UF is 17 September
2007; paper copies of the applications and supporting materials (letters of
recommendation, etc.) must be submitted to the Fulbright Program Advisors in
140 Tigert Hall by that date. Note that the campus deadline is earlier than
the national deadline of 19 October 2007, so that all UF applicants can be
interviewed on campus as required.
Students should access the on-line application directly through the website
at www.fulbrightonline.org, where there is more information about the
program and the specific country guidelines. For the 2004-2005 academic
year, there were nine Fulbrights from UF; there are currently seven UF
students on Fulbright awards this year. For more information about the UF
application process, click on this link:
