International programs presents Fulbright workshop

(April 4, 2005)--The UTSA Office of International Programs will sponsor a workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, Tuesday, April 5 in the John Peace Library Building Regents' Room (4.03.12), 1604 Campus, for faculty members and professionals interested in applying for a Fulbright Award.

Carol Robles, senior program officer for the Western Hemisphere at the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), will lead the workshop. Topics include lecture and research opportunities in 140 countries, choosing a country and applying, preparing the Fulbright application and how a campus can host foreign Fulbright scholars.

The Fulbright Program, the U.S. government's flagship program in international educational exchange, was proposed to the U.S. Congress in 1945 by then freshman Sen. J. William Fulbright of Arkansas.

Fulbright grants are made to U.S. citizens and nationals of other countries for a variety of educational activities including university lecturing, advanced research, graduate study, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools.

Since the program's inception, more than 250,000 participants -- chosen for their leadership potential -- have had the opportunity to observe each other's political, economic and cultural institutions.

CIES manages the Fulbright Scholarship Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

To participate in the workshop, contact Holly Hill, Office of International Programs, at (210) 458-7204.
