Description:
FULBRIGHT - INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR STEM STUDENTS
(GRAD/UNDERGRAD): INFORMATION SESSIONS

If you are a junior or senior STEM major, a recent STEM graduate, or a STEM
graduate student, and would benefit from the opportunity to conduct research
abroad in 2018-19, in a lab or field project related to your future STEM
career goals, you should learn about the Fulbright program.

Maryland has had great success placing STEM students in labs and field
projects - including neurology research in the Netherlands, bio-engineering
in Spain, physics in Austria, and marine biology in Indonesia, among others.

Fulbright awards are designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates and graduate
students (who are also US citizens) opportunities for international
experience, personal enrichment and an open exchange of ideas with citizens
of other nations. About 2000 Fulbright fully-funded grants are currently
available to over 150 nations. There are two distinct types of grant:
study/research awards for students who wish to pursue lab or field research
abroad, and English Teaching Assistantships. For detailed information please
visit the Fulbright US Student Program website at:
