International Scholarships, Grants, and Fellowships Open House Sept. 29

September 23rd, 2014

Are you interested in the possibility of international study, research, or teaching? Please join International Programs for our International Scholarships, Grants, and Fellowships Open House to learn how you can apply for different types of merit-based awards. The event will be held on Monday, September 29, 2014, from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in the International Commons, 1117 University Capitol Centre.

At 4 p.m. during the event, International Fellowships Specialist Karen Wachsmuth will present information on applying for awards, such as the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the Stanley Awards for International Research, the German Academic Exchange Service Awards (DAAD), the Critical Language Scholarships, and the Boren Awards.  You'll also have the chance to meet former Stanley, Fulbright, and DAAD student grantees who will share their stories and experiences abroad.

A reception will be held immediately following the information session at 5 p.m. to celebrate the close of this year’s Fulbright application season. This year’s applicants, former Fulbright awardees, and faculty will join us.

Undergraduate, graduate, and professional students are welcome to join for both events. Please RSVP if you will be attending the reception.
