VIDEO: Fulbright Info Sessions Planned for End of March


The cost of college education can be very expensive, and many students can be held back from pursuing special projects or endeavors due to limited funding.

That’s where the Fulbright US Student program comes in. Sponsored by the US Department of State, Fulbright awards provide complete funding for nine to ten months abroad, providing students with an incredible opportunity to pursue an independent study, service, research project, English teaching, or an artistic endeavor.

Applications are open to US citizens with a strong academic and leadership record. Fulbright awards are ideal for graduating seniors seeking a bridge between undergraduate study and a career or graduate or professional school, as well as current graduate students who are pursuing research.

The Office of National Scholarships Advisement (ONSA) will be hosting several upcoming information sessions for ASU students who are interested in applying to Fulbright US Student program. For further information on the program and the application process, visit

RSVP for Fulbright Day @ ASU, and learn more about this opportunity. A meeting is planned for 3 pm on Tuesday, March 21st, in the Pima Room at the Memorial Union. This event is the official “launch” of Fulbright season at ASU, and it will provide an overview of the program and the application process. Aspiring applicants will hear from past Fulbright winners, who will discuss their experiences and provide advice. A networking reception will follow.  RSVP at

For students who cannot attend Fulbright Day @ ASU, there will be two general information sessions: 
March 27, 4:30 pm, Sage S242 (RSVP)
March 28, 4:30 pm, Vista del Sol Theatre (RSVP)

These info sessions will provide a general overview of the Fulbright US Student program and the application process. Questions about these events may be directed to Laura Sells ( or 480.727.8204).

Last year, Fulbright funded approximately 1,700 U.S. citizens’ research, study, or teaching projects in over 155 countries, and ASU is among the most successful universities for producing Fulbright award winners. In five out of the last seven years, ASU has been among the top ten for Fulbright winners, ahead of Stanford, Princeton, Cornell, and Penn.  Visit for complete program information.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
