VCUarts Fulbright Information Sessions: 3/5 + 3/18, noon

Published on February 18, 2015

Arts students are really rising up when comes to this scholarship.  In short the Fulbright is a scholarship for you to live in a foreign country for a year to execute your research.  The application is a process that’s not to be taken lightly, and the National Scholarship Office is here to be your guide.  For the applications that go through, the probability of success is actually pretty high depending on where you are going.  Those statistics are here.  All are welcome to attend this session, but applicants for the next round are for students who are going to complete their degrees by August 2016.  If you are a first or second year student and you’re on a fact finding mission or are maybe interested, please come.  Below is a message from Jeff Wing, Director of the National Scholarship Office.


 

The School of the Arts will host two Fulbright information sessions offered by the National Scholarship Office (NSO). The Fulbright Student Scholarship (http://us.fulbrightonline.org) offers opportunities for graduate students, graduating seniors and those who will complete their bachelors degree by August 2016 to design creative projects, conduct independent research, or teach English in one of more than 140 countries abroad. Recent alumni who have not yet completed a PhD are also eligible to apply for the Fulbright Student Scholarship.

Two sessions that will focus specifically on applications in the arts are scheduled for:
Thursday, March 5, noon-1p, Dean’s Conference Room, Pollak 201
Wednesday, March 18, noon-1p, Dean’s Conference Room, Pollak 421
