Fulbright Program Experts to Visit UM Campus Sept. 5

August 31, 2017

MISSOULA – Two representatives from the Institute of International Education will visit the University of Montana on Tuesday, Sept. 5, to provide information on the Student Fulbright Program.

Fulbright Student Alumni Ambassador Ryan Bell will join Outreach Specialist Lee Rivers to hold informational meetings about the diverse opportunities the Fulbright program offers, which include fully funded grants for study, research or English teaching assistantships in more than 140 countries. Bell, who earned his M.F.A. in nonfiction writing from UM in 2014, received a coveted National Geographic Fulbright Award to Russia and Kazakhstan for the 2015-16 academic year.

A Fulbright U.S. Student Program Workshop, intended for all undergraduate and graduate students interested in the program, is slated for 3 p.m. in the Payne Family Native American Center Room 201. The workshop also is free and open to the public.

Other meetings designed for specific student populations will be held throughout the day as well, though those sessions also are open to students who are unable to attend the 3 p.m. meeting. The additional meetings will be held at the following times and locations:  

  • 11 a.m., Davidson Honors College Room 119: DHC students
  • 1 p.m., Liberal Arts Building Room 207: Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures students
  • 2 p.m., LA Room 207: Current Fulbright applicants
