Join the Office of International Programs Thursday, Nov. 15, for a special presentation by Erica Lutes, executive director of Fulbright Belgium and Luxembourg, and Schuman Programs.

This brown bag session is an opportunity for both faculty and students to learn more about the Department of State’s signature educational exchange program.

Fulbright awards are available for faculty at all stages of their career, from post-doctoral staff to senior-level professors and administrators, and the Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English teaching assistant programs.

Fulbright offers research opportunities in more than 125 countries, in programs that range from two weeks to an academic year. The Office of International Programs can provide more information and advice on creating a competitive application.

The session runs from noon - 1 p.m. in Student Center Building, Hilberry A. Beverages will be provided. RSVP and learn more at https://rsvp.wayne.edu/fulbright-international-career.

This event is part of International Education Week, a joint initiative of State Department and the U.S. Department of Education, focusing on the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide with the goal of preparing American students for a global environment and attracting future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the U.S.

The Office of International Programs leads Wayne State’s global engagement by creating opportunities that foster international education and research, facilitate the exchange of individuals and ideas that promote global competencies and citizenship, and provide resources that support the expansion of the university’s global agenda.
