The Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives (GSI) and the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) are partnering to host a day of free Fulbright information sessions on Wednesday, Feb 15, for Emory faculty and professionals interesting in applying for Fulbright grants.

Andrew Reiss, Assistant Director of Outreach at the Institute of International Education, which administers the Fulbright Scholar Program, will be on campus to give a presentation on the grants for U.S. faculty and professionals. A limited number of brief, one-on-one morning meeting slots for faculty who have questions about the process will also be available. Attendees will learn about opportunities to teach and conduct research abroad and get tips on preparing Fulbright grant applications.

  • A presentation and question-and-answer session on Fulbright Scholar grants will take place from noon to 2:00 p.m. in the Jones Room on the third floor of Woodruff Library, and boxed lunches will be served.
  • Brief one-on-one meetings with Reiss will run from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the CFDE (216 Woodruff Library). He will review draft proposal summaries before his visit and provide guidance and feedback to strengthen them. To sign up for a time slot, email a short project abstract (and a draft proposal if available) to Allison Adams, associate director of the CFDE, by Monday, Feb 6. The description should be no more than two pages and include a brief bio and contact information.

The deadline for applications to the 2017-18 Fulbright Scholar Program is Aug. 1, 2017. The program provides approximately 800 teaching and research grants each year to U.S. faculty and professionals in a variety of fields. Grants are available in more than 125 countries. For more information, contact Kevin Kelly, assistant director of the Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives.

The CFDE also offers multiple online resources and advice for applying for a Fulbright Scholar Grant.
