Marta Wayne, Dean of UF International Center, Associate Provost

The International Center and the UF Fulbright Lecture Committee are pleased to announce that Fulbright Awareness Month (FAM) will be celebrated from March 4-31, 2024.

Fulbright Awareness Month includes multiple informational sessions for scholars, faculty, staff, and students and provide opportunities to learn about Fulbright, the application process, and to hear about the experiences of past Fulbright participants. Despite the different challenges that we face both at home and abroad, the Fulbright mission remains the same: to increase mutual understanding and support  friendly and peaceful relations between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The UF International Center continues to support faculty, students, and staff interested in exploring international exchange and collaborations through Fulbright.

This year’s information sessions for faculty and staff interested in applying for the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program will feature a representative from the Institute of International Education (IIE) in Washington, D.C. For more information contact canumba@ufic.ufl.edu.
