Webinar: Fulbright Scholar Awards for Irish citizens
April 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFREE
The Fulbright Awards provide grants for Irish citizens, and EU citizens resident in Ireland for 5+ years, to research, study, or lecture in the USA.
The Fulbright Irish Scholar Awards support candidates to complete postdoctoral or professional research or lecturing for a period of 3 months up to 1 year.
The Fulbright Commission in Ireland strives to ensure that its programmes reflect and value the diversity of Irish and U.S. societies. Equity steps to support this intent include the provision of online interviews for shortlisted candidates and assessment beyond academic aspects. Learn more here.
The competition for Fulbright Irish Scholar and Student Awards is open August-November annually.
At this webinar, Fulbright staff and Alumni will give:
– an overview of the Fulbright Irish Scholar Awards on offer
– information on supports and resources available
– advice on how to prepare for the application period
