TO:  Graduate Students

There will be an orientation session in room 219 Dauer Hall (The Ruth
McQuown Room) on Tuesday, June 10 at 11 am (3th period) to discuss
successful grant strategies for the Fulbright Program.  If you have
previously attended an information session about the Fulbright, you do not
need to attend this session.

UF students have the opportunity to win a Fulbright award to any of over 140
different countries.  The awards are for graduate research at the MA and
Ph.D. level, as well as for graduating seniors.  For the 2003-2004 academic
year, there were 59 applicants from the University of Florida, and 19 of
them have been forwarded by the national committee to the respective
countries for final decisions.

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 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 in any field,
including business, journalism, engineering, and arts and sciences can
apply.  The Fulbright application deadline at UF is October 6, 2003, so work
on the application should begin immediately.
