Fulbright Fellowship Workshops

As you may know, Villanova has been recognized for the number of students who win awards from the Fulbright Program, which is the U.S. government’s “flagship international educational exchange program”—and students from the English department have been among the most successful in the competition for these awards.  Click here to read more about Villanova's success.

This week, our Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships will be hosting two workshops on the Fulbright awards. The workshops will cover the components of a Fulbright application, how to choose a country, and how to make oneself a competitive candidate.

The workshops are Monday, April 13, at 4:30 pm, and Thursday, April 16, at 3:00 pm.  They will both be in Garey 101 and will last approximately one hour.

To RSVP, or to set up an appointment to discuss their candidacy, students should contact Kurt Davies, Assistant Director of Fellowships (kurt.davies@villanova.edu).
