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
Wednesday, September 6, 8th period (3:00 pm to 3:50 pm) 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 September 18, 2006; 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
October 21, 2006, so that all UF applicants can be interviewed on campus
as required.

Students should access the on-line application directly through the
website at, where there is more information
about the program and the specific country guidelines. For the 2004-2005
academic year, there were 9 Fulbrights from UF; there are currently 7 UF
students on Fulbright awards this year. For more information about the
UF application process, see
