I am delighted to let you know that the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has announced this past week that UF ranks second among the 18 top-producing research institutions of Fulbright Scholars for 2015-16.  To continue our efforts of increasing awareness and supporting Fulbright programs on campus, the UF International Center has designated the month of March 2016 as Fulbright Awareness Month. In collaboration with the UF Fulbright Lectures Committee, UF Honors, and the Graduate School, multiple activities for students, scholars, faculty and staff are planned to learn about the Fulbright application process and to listen to the experiences of past Fulbright scholars and students.
