Tuesday, November 19

Dr. Erin Crawley will hold 2 information sessions for GRADUATE STUDENTS who are interested in doing graduate research abroad. The first session will focus on two Fulbright programs: Fulbright US Student Program (MA or PhD research) and the Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) program. We will be discussing the types of projects abroad that can be funded and the application process. To be eligible for the Fulbright US Student program you must be a US citizen. Applicants to the Fulbright-Hays DDRA must be a
US citizen or permanent resident.

The second information session focuses only on the Fulbright-Hays DDRA program and the technical review used to evaluate all applications. We will discuss how to work with the review to create a strong application and how to cope with a national deadline that is TBD.

If you can’t attend an information session, but would like to learn more about either program, you can schedule an individual appointment with Dr. Crawley: fellow@intl-institute.wisc.edu, http://fellowships.international.wisc.edu/, 608-262-9632.

Fulbright US Student Information for Undergraduates

Find out about the Fulbright US Student program

If you are an undergraduate interested in pursuing a project abroad after you graduate, come to an information session to find out more about this incredible opportunity. If you are a Freshman or Sophomore, it is not too early to learn about this program. Are you a Junior or Senior? Then it’s not late (or too early) to begin preparing for Fulbright application deadlines in the fall (early September)!

Dr. Erin Crawley is the Fulbright Program Advisor for UW-Madison and is available to meet with students at any point in their undergraduate career to talk about Fulbright grants. There will be one general information session about the Fulbright US Student program and one session that will focus on the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) grant opportunity during International Education week. We will discuss the different types of grant categories, the application process, and how to plan ahead for a successful application.

Princeton in Asia Information Session

Princeton in Asia (PiA) Info Session for UW Seniors and graduates

Monday, October 14th, 5-6pm
Union South, Alumni Room, 2nd floor
Q&A hosted by two current graduate students, former PiA recipients

Looking for the job of a lifetime?

Before you start grad school, spend the rest of your life in a cubicle or go back to living in your parents’ basement, take a second and envision yourself…as a university teacher in beautiful rural China, exploring floating markets in Thailand, working for the Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, waking up each morning in a Buddhist temple in Japan, or working for a democracy-building organization during the elections in Cambodia.

Princeton in Asia (http://piaweb.princeton.edu) sponsors over 165 fellowships in 21 countries and is the oldest and largest non-profit organization of its kind, unique in its scope, size, century-long expertise and emphasis on service. PiA arranges fellowships and internships with Asian host organizations in the fields of education, health, international development, environmental advocacy, journalism, engineering, technology, law and business. Fellowships are the means of fostering person-to-person diplomacy, enhancing mutual understanding, serving vulnerable communities with unmet needs and providing transformative experiences for fellows and host communities.

If you feel like adventure is in store for you next year, please join us for a brief, fun Q&A session! Monday, October 14th, 5-6pm. Union South, Alumni Room, 2nd floor.

Contact Dr. Erin Crawley, if you have questions about the session.
