Fulbright Scholarship Information Session
3 pm - Monday, August 31 - Room 211 Student Center
The deadline for campus applications is September 24, 2009. Scholarships are for 2010-2011.
The info session will cover
○ the types of Fulbright Scholarships available
○ an overview of the application process
○ Q & A
This session is open to everyone: applicants in the current application cycle, students considering the opportunity for future years, and recent alumni who would like to apply through UK this year or in upcoming application cycles.
The U.S. Student Fulbright Program offers scholarships to recent bachelor’s graduates (by start of grant), master’s and doctoral students, young professionals and artists for study and research abroad. A “Full Grant” supports a project and/or study plan that will take place during one academic year in a country outside of the U.S. Fulbright Scholars meet, work, and live with and learn from the people of the host country on a daily basis. Grants are available to more than 140 countries worldwide.
The Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships Program is designed to improve foreign students' English language abilities and knowledge of the United States. English Teaching Assistants (recipients of an “ETA Grant”) are placed outside of capital cities in over 30 countries and are fully integrated into the host community, increasing their own language skills and knowledge of the host country. ETA grantees may also pursue individual study/research plans in addition to their teaching responsibilities.
Who is eligible to apply in Fall 2009 via University of Kentucky?
Enrolled students must apply via UK.
Currently enrolled seniors who will graduate before the grant period begins (Aug. 2010)
Enrolled graduate students not holding a doctoral degree at the time of application (recipients of J.D. are eligible)
Recent UK alumni are encouraged to apply through UK, but also have the option of applying as “at-large” candidates.
Applicants must be US citizens
