A year abroad to research, study, or teach English. This is specifically geared toward the fourth year, graduate, or alum, who may have only recently found out about the Fulbright US Student Award and wants to consider submitting an application for the fall. The session itself will only go over UVa’s internal process and then open up to Q&A. Attendees are expected to have watched a recorded webinar in advance of the session: http://us.fulbrightonline.org/resources/recorded-webinars. (Watch “Introduction to Study/Research” and/or “Introduction to English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Awards” if you do not already have a region of interest.)
