The U of M’s Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies and the Center for International Programs and Services will host information sessions about the Fulbright and Gilman scholarships for students and faculty on Wednesday, Feb. 9th, in the University Center Ballroom. The sessions will be led by representatives from the U.S. Department of State and the International Institute of Education (IIE), which administer both programs.

Sessions on the U.S. Student Fulbright and Gilman scholarships will both be held from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Fulbright session will be in Ballroom B, led by Tony Claudino, director of Fulbright Student Program Outreach at IIE. He will provide an overview of the Fulbright program for students, including tips for submitting a competitive application. Graduating seniors and graduate students are eligible to apply for the Fulbright, which offers fellowships to U.S. students for study, research, and/or teaching assistantships abroad. More information on the Fulbright U.S. Student Program is available online at www.fulbrightonline.org.

The Gilman Scholarship session will be in Ballroom C, led by Jennifer Campbell, assistant director of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship at IIE. The Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship offers awards for U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are receiving federal Pell Grants to participate in study abroad programs. More information on the Gilman Scholarship is available online at www.iie.org/gilman.

The Fulbright and Gilman information sessions are open to U of M students only.

The U.S. Scholar Fulbright Workshop for faculty will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. in Ballroom C. The workshop will be led by David Levin, senior program manager in the Office of Academic Exchange Programs at the U.S. Department of State. Levin will discuss the Fulbright application process and give an overview of Fulbright opportunities for U.S. faculty, administrators, and professionals to lecture, conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields, or to participate in seminars.

Applicants to the Fulbright Scholar Program must be U.S. citizens.
