Fulbright Week 2018

Fulbright Week 2018

Appalachian State University is hosting Fulbright Week 2018, an inaugural event organized and supported by multiple partners across campus, including administrative offices and faculty. A plethora of events have been planned to help share the many opportunities available to you through Fulbright, answer questions you have about the program, and help you prepare a strong Fulbright application. A representative from the Fulbright Scholar Program from the Institute of International Education (IIE) and a Fulbright Foreign Scholar from Algeria will also join us for the week.

The week is sponsored by the Office of International Education and Development, the Office of Research, and the Center for Academic Excellence.

We look forward to seeing you many times during this week!
