The Fulbright in the Future sessions are meant for students who are preparing to apply for Fulbright in the next several years. These sessions will discuss the selection criteria and what Fulbright is looking for in applicants for both the Open Study/Research and English Teaching Assistant grants. Based on these criteria, NCA will provide recommendations on activities, organizations, and experiences you can become involved in to help prepare you for your future Fulbright application. Be ready to collaborate in this session! NCA is also interested in what you are currently involved in and how it could be related to the Fulbright selection criteria.

Registration is required; you only need to register for one session. Additionally, be sure to watch the pre-recorded tutorials that introduce the Fulbright program and the various grant types before the session.
