Come hear about the Fulbright Study/Research grants from Drexel students who are finalists for the program and staff from the Drexel Fellowships Office.

In this workshop, we will review the basics of the Fulbright US Student Program and consider a range of projects that students have done with the support of a Fulbright grant. Participants will leave the workshop with one or two initial ideas for what they might propose to do on a Fulbright if they were to apply. Applying for a Fulbright or another international scholarship and looking for a professor to work with in a foreign country? We are offering two workshops on how to find an international affiliation. You will be introduced to the Community of Science Scholar Universe, Web of Science, and other databases.
