Both sessions will cover the basics of the program including the purpose of the Fulbright, the range of opportunities available and how to create a strong application. The 2:30 p.m. presentation will focus on English teaching assistantship opportunities, and the 3:30 p.m. presentation will focus on study and research opportunities, including the possibility of earning a one-year master's degree abroad.
The K-State campus deadline for the Fulbright U.S. Student Grant is Aug. 30. Interested students who are unable to attend one of the sessions are encouraged to contact Jim Hohenbary, director of nationally competitive scholarships, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
