Workshop Will Help UK Faculty Apply for Fulbright Awards

Published: Mar 10, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 10, 2014) — The University of Kentucky is highly ranked for the number of faculty conducting ground-breaking research on the international stage through the Fulbright Program.

 

Many of the successful Fulbright recipients were advised by David Adams, the former director of the East Asia/Pacific region for the Fulbright Program, whom the UK International Center brought to campus in 2013.
 

“The University of Kentucky currently ranks in the top ten among research institutions for the number of faculty Fulbright recipients,” said UK Provost Christine Riordan. “Our hope is that these workshops will continue to build off of this great work, and provide our faculty with more opportunities with the prestigious Fulbright Program.”
 

To help continue this success, David Adams will return in March to conduct workshops and to meet privately with interested applicants.  His workshops will take place on:
 

Tuesday, March 25

  • Fulbright 101: 9-11 a.m. in Study Room 1 of the Lucille Little Library
  • Individual Advising Session: 1-3 p.m. in 101 Bradley Hall
  • “Chinese-American Educational Exchanges: A Window on the Bilateral Relationship: 3:30-5p.m. in the Alumni Gallery of the William T. Young Library (sponsored by the UK Confucius Institute)

Wednesday, March 26

  • Individual Advising Sessions: 8 a.m.- noon in 101 Bradley Hall
  • Fulbright 102: 2-4 p.m. in Study Room 1 of the Lucille Little Library

The workshops will cover developing applications for the Fulbright Core and Specialist programs.
 

The Core Fulbright Scholar program sends 800 U.S. faculty and professionals abroad each year. Grantees lecture and conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields. The 2015-16 competition opens Feb. 1, and closes Aug. 1.
 

The Fulbright Specialist Program is designed to provide short-term academic opportunities (two to six weeks) for U.S. faculty and professionals. Shorter grant lengths give Specialist greater flexibility to pursue a grant that works best with their current academic or professional goals. There is a rolling deadline for these competitions.
 

Alan Fryar, associate professor of earth and environmental sciences, was recently awarded a Fulbright for his research in Fez, Morocco.
 

“The Fulbright workshop I attended last year was really worthwhile,” said Fryar. “I gained insight into how the review panels work and personalized guidance about the organization and content of my application.”
