Subject: Fulbright Information Session May 27


Graduating seniors and graduate students who want to do research overseas
can learn about successful strategies to receive a prestigious Fulbright
award at the Fulbright orientation session on Thursday, May 27th at 12:30 pm
(4th period) in room 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, including business, journalism,
engineering, and arts and sciences are encouraged to apply.  Application
forms and 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 October 4,
2004; applications must be reviewed and submitted to the Fulbright Program
Advisors in 140 Tigert Hall by that date, so work on the application should
begin immediately.  Note that the campus deadline is earlier than the
national deadline of October 21, 2004, so that all UF applicants can be
interviewed on campus as required.

Students should access the on-line application directly through the website
at, in the Application Center link. The Fulbright
website has more information at about the program.

For the 2003-2004 academic year, there were 59 applicants from the
University of Florida, and 10 students were offered the Fulbright grant.
