PULLMAN, Wash. – Do you have questions about your Fulbright Scholar application?
Aug. 1 is the deadline for the Fulbright Core Scholar program beginning fall 2012.
The Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) is offering webinars on July 20 and 27 to help answer any last-minute questions you might have.
Nancy Shrope, WSU’s campus Fulbright representative for faculty awards, said she is always available to talk with faculty about the Fulbright application. But, she said, the webinars are a great opportunity for applicants to talk directly with Fulbright program administrators.
The webinars both are titled “Reviewing Your Fulbright Application Package.”
To sign up for the July 20 webinar, go to https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/980555592. To sign up for the July 27 webinar, go to https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/537237784.
During the 2011-2012 academic year, seven WSU faculty earned Fulbright awards, more than any other university in the Pacific Northwest.
Core awards for faculty scholars, the largest program offered by the Fulbright program, can be from two months to one year, Shrope said. Fulbright sends about 800 scholars each year to about 125 countries.
For more information, contact Shrope at nshrope.wsu.edu or Mushtaq Memon at memon@vetmed.wsu.edu.
Memon, an associate professor in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences and the Allen School for Global Animal Health, is a Fulbright Ambassador who helps promote the program at colleges and universities across the country, and particularly in the Pacific Northwest.
