Fulbright Accelerator Workshop

Friday February 12, noon – 1pm, online (link will be posted closer to the date)

This workshop for CAHSS faculty will provide an overview of the Fulbright Core Scholar Program and other exciting Fulbright opportunities for UMBC faculty. The workshop will include information on the upcoming competition and provide tips for short- and long-term planning and preparing strong Fulbright applications. Time will be given for Q&A.

We will be joined by a Program Officer from the Institute of International Education (IIE), which develops and implements the Fulbright programs. Brian Souders, Associate Director for Global Engagement Opportunities in UMBC’s Office of International Education Services, will discuss UMBC’s support for faculty applicants. CIRCA Director and Professor of Visual Arts Lynn Cazabon will share her experiences as a Fulbright Scholar in Latvia in 2015. There, she developed and taught classes in the New Media Arts Program at Liepaja University while pursuing her own project, a series of photographic and text portraits of Liepaja residents at the edge of the Baltic Sea.

The 2021 Fulbright Accelerator Workshop is co-sponsored by the CAHSS Dean’s Office; the Center for Social Science Scholarship; the Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts; the Dresher Center for the Humanities; and the Office of International Education Services.

Questions? Rachel Brubaker, Assistant Director for Grants and Program Development, Dresher Center
