Fulbright HSI Workshop (Nov 7)

The Fulbright HSI Workshop (November 7, 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET) is designed to help HSI faculty and staff learn how to make the most of the resources and training that Fulbright provides, whether you are already involved with Fulbright or are looking to get started. This virtual, interactive workshop will be a moderated discussion with Q&A from the participants. Please register at REGISTRATION

Join us as our panel of campus experts — faculty and administrators from this year’s Fulbright HSI Institutional Leaders – share best practices and tips on how to do more with Fulbright, including advising students, assisting faculty, and hosting Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants, Fulbright Scholars-in-Residence, Fulbright Foreign Students, Fulbright Visiting Scholars, and Fulbright Outreach Lecturing Fund visiting lecturers. They will also share suggestions on how to create or advocate for policies that are Fulbright-friendly and foster a Fulbright culture on your campus.
Prior to the workshop, all registrants will receive a video on “Fulbright Fundamentals” with an overview of the Fulbright Student and Scholar Programs to review at your convenience, so the workshop can focus on the discussion and Q&A with Fulbright Program Advisers, Fulbright Scholar Liaisons, and senior-level administrators.

Florida International University About the Fulbright HSI Leaders

The 43 Fulbright HSI Leaders, announced on October 10 during the international plenary session at the annual conference of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), include four Associate Institutions, five Baccalaureate and Special Focus Institutions, 10 Masters Institutions, and 24 Doctoral Institutions.

This initiative is part of the U.S. State Department’s long-standing commitment to build diversity and inclusion within the Fulbright Program and within all the Bureau’s international exchange programs. ECA has established this designation to acknowledge the strong partnerships between the Fulbright Program and HSIs, and to encourage the entire network of HSIs to increase their Fulbright engagement. Having strong HSI participation in Fulbright is critical to fully representing the diversity of the United States through the Program.
