Learn from Fulbright director about faculty Fulbright Scholar opportunities

On Friday, March 23, the Center for International Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences will host Debra Egan, director of Fulbright Scholar programs, to share information about the 2012-13 Fulbright Scholar program, resources available to faculty and tips for applying for a Fulbright Scholar grant.

Egan’s presentation will be held from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in Tomlinson Hall 135. The presentation will cover an introduction of the program, components of the online application, qualities in competitive applications, the review process and the Fulbright application timeline. In addition, Egan will highlight the Fulbright Core Program, which provides more than 1,000 teaching and/or grants lasting from two to 12 months in more than 125 countries.

Egan also will introduce other Fulbright opportunities for U.S. and international scholars, including the Fulbright Specialist Program, Seminars of International Education Administrators, the Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Program and the Fulbright NEXUS Regional Scholar Program. Immediately after the presentation, the Center for International Affairs will host a reception in the lobby of Tomlinson Hall. All CWRU faculty and staff members are invited to learn more about Fulbright Scholar opportunities.

In addition to the general presentation, Egan is available for up to nine individual conferences of 20 minutes each on March 23 from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m.

To request an individual meeting with Egan, email Rebecca Kaaikaula at kek15@case.edu with your name, department and school or college. Indicate in the email (1) if you plan to apply for a Fulbright this year, and (2) if you are unavailable anytime during those two periods.

If the center receives more requests than time available, preference will be given to faculty members who plan to apply this year. Requests will be honored in the order they are received. The center will try to allocate time equally to all schools.
