1) Deadline Approaching: Core Fulbright Scholar Program AY2014-15 - August 1, 2013
This is a reminder that the application deadline for the core Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program for academic year 2014-2015 is rapidly approaching. As you may be aware, the deadline is 11:59 PM, Eastern Daylight Time, Wednesday, August 1, 2013. Fulbright opportunities exist all around the globe. This year the competition includes 580 awards in 6 regional and 133 country programs. The awards are both discipline-specific and “All Discipline,” including virtually every specialization. Approximately 800 grants will result from this competition. Further, there is a series of important innovations for 2014-2015, including Flex, Global TEFL, and postdoc/early career awards, and stipend increases for some programs. The Fulbright Catalog of Awards and application are accessible only at the CIES website. A number of helpful webinars about finding awards and completing the application are archived at http://www.cies.org/Webinar/#Archive. Please don’t hesitate to contact CIES if you have any questions.
