Fulbright program promotes global learning on campus

Fullbright Scholarships

The Fulbright Scholar Program provides the perfect opportunity for faculty to invigorate their teaching through cultural immersion and leadership development in an international education exchange.

“This is an easy and useful way to acquire valuable international teaching or research experiences, and these experiences can be used to advance global learning in the curriculum,” said Harvey Charles, vice provost for International Education. “NAU is very supportive of faculty participation in the Fulbright program, and such participation is consistent with the university’s effort to transform itself into a global campus.”

Applications to the Fulbright Scholar Program for the 2011-12 academic year are being accepted through Aug. 2. Last academic year, the national program sent 1,551 students and 1,250 scholars to more than 140 countries, and Northern Arizona University was cited as a top producer of Fulbright Scholars among research institutions.
