An information meeting on the student Fulbright fellowship and its various programs will be held on Tuesday, May 9, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Lalumiere 172.
The Fulbright is the largest competitive scholarship program in the United States, and regularly sends hundreds of recent graduates and graduate students overseas for individual research, or service as English Teaching Assistants.
The campus deadline for completed applications is the first week of September, but the application is extensive, and it’s essential to start several months ahead.
Juniors, seniors or graduate students this year (2016-2017) who are considering applying for a Fulbright Fellowship in the fall of 2017, (i.e. for a fellowship that begins during the 2018-2019 academic year), need to get a start on the application process.
Marquette’s Fulbright advisors, Drs. John Pustejovsky and Rosemary Stuart, will host the information meeting. Interested students who are not graduating in 2018 are encouraged to attend anyway to discover what Fulbright offers.
“If you have a strong academic record and wide interests, consider Fulbright,” Pustejovsky said. “Remember, you won’t win if you don’t apply.”
