Fulbright Scholar Program information session with alumni, April 11

If you have thought about applying for a Fulbright Scholar (faculty) Award and want to learn more, join the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for a virtual presentation on Tuesday, April 11, at 1 p.m. on the Fulbright Scholar experience from two faculty members and Fulbright alumni.

The event features Dr. Lisa Edwards, professor of counselor education and counseling psychology in the College of Education, and Erik Ugland, associate professor of digital media and performing arts in the Diederich College of Communication.

Edwards received a research award to study perinatal mental health among immigrant and refugee mothers in Colombia at the Universidad CES in Medellín, Colombia.

Ugland received a Fulbright award to the Czech Republic. From January through May 2014, Ugland taught graduate-level courses on the political economy of global media and media law at Masaryk University in order to examine questions about the boundaries of free expression in a digital world. 

They will share their personal experience with the program, from preparing their proposal to managing international travel and living abroad with and without loved ones.  

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program’s 2024-25 competition is currently open, featuring over 400 awards offered in more than 130 countries in all world regions. Fulbright U.S. Scholar Awards allow U.S. citizens to teach, research and carry out professional projects all over the world. A brief overview of the application process and components will also be covered during this presentation.  

If you would like to attend, please RSVP online.
