The Fulbright Seminar in American Studies is held annually in idyllic Strobl am Wolfgangsee, and is an opportunity for US and Austrian Fulbright students and scholars to connect and learn from each other. US Fulbright scholars give talks on topics related to American Studies from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and US Fulbright students share their research through poster presentations. The event serves as a pre-departure orientation for Austrian Fulbrighters and FLTAs.
Fulbright Austria is pleased to invite its current US grantees and Fulbright Alumni to a Fulbright Austria Gathering.
Five Fulbright Austria staff members spent four days advising hundreds of students about opportunities to study in the USA with Fulbright and EducationUSA. We also held a special workshop on writing personal statements and more for US university applications, and a talk on the Fulbright Program and other scholarship opportunities! Our presence at the fair was supported by a special grant from the US Embassy Vienna.
Sixteen new US Fulbright Scholars participated in the two-day February 2018 US Fulbright Scholar orientation, which included lectures and discussions with Fulbright alumni and representatives of the U.S. Embassy Vienna in Fulbright Austria's MQ – MuseumsQuartier Wien/Q21 offices, a walking tour of Vienna's historic Ringstrasse, and a reception with current US Fulbrighters, Austrian Fulbright candidates, alumni, institutional partners and friends, and more.
