RE:  Fulbright Information Session

There will be an information session on Thursday, September 5 from 12:00 pm
to 1:30 pm in 219 Dauer Hall (Ruth McQuown Room) about the Fulbright
program.  Students who attended an earlier information session do not need
to attend this meeting.  Students are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch to
the information session.

UF students have the opportunity to win a Fulbright award to any of over 140
different countries.  The awards are for graduating college seniors, as well
for as graduate research at the MA and Ph.D. level. Students in any field
can apply.  Applicants for a Fulbright award must be U.S. citizens, have a
strong GPA, have a record of community service, and be interested in
international scholarship.  The awards fund research and study for up to a
year in a different country.  Awards cover international travel,
maintenance, research allowance, and tuition waivers, if applicable.

Students must create a project proposal and submit a personal statement in
addition to basic information in the application.  Students are strongly
encouraged to begin work on the applications immediately, and more
information can be found on the Fulbright web site at

work on the application, and can be obtained from the information session or
