Mandatory Fulbright Meeting for All 2021 Applicants
NCA is hosting a mandatory meeting via Webex on Wednesday, August 4 at 12-1:30 PM. If you are applying for a Fulbright grant this year through UC, you are expected to attend. We will be going over final steps for submitting by the campus deadline (August 20), including what all we need to have by that date. We will also be talking everyone through the campus review process (what to expect, how to prepare, etc.). This meeting helps ensure that everyone is on the same page, so please make it a priority to attend. Pllease email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the WebEx link.
Please note that August 4 is also our Intent-to-Apply deadline: this is the latest date by which you can notify us that you are applying and still expect to be accommodated by the campus review process.
