USF Fulbright Day 2019 Highlights

USF Fulbright Day


USF’s second annual Fulbright Day was held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. USF Fulbright Day is a campus wide event that celebrates international education through USF’s Fulbright legacy with the Fulbright Scholar Program (for U.S. and foreign Faculty) and the Fulbright Student Program (for U.S. and foreign Students).

Recently, USF was named the TOP PRODUCING INSTITUTION for Fulbright US Scholars for 2017-18, with 12 USF faculty members receiving Fulbright’s!

On April 10, three events were held to celebrate USF Fulbright Day: a USF Fulbright Student Alumni Panel, a Celebratory Reception, and a Special Conversation with Mr. Hoyt Purvis, former chair of the Fulbright Scholarship Board and press secretary to U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright.

The Alumni Panel featured USF student alumni sharing their Fulbright experiences, including why they applied, and how a Fulbright impacted their career goals.

Mr. Purvis was a special guest speaker for the Alumni Panel. Panelists included:

Jenna Dionisio

Mary Wynn Karatal

Fulbright U.S. Student Program English Teaching Assistantship (ETA) to Turkey

Catherine Law

Kevin Orner

Fulbright U.S. Student Program Research Grant Recipient to Costa Rica

Lauren Shumate

Aroushad Tahsini

The Celebratory Reception brought together students, faculty and staff to network and celebrate USF and Senator J. William Fulbright. Former Faculty and Student Fulbright alumni were in attendance, along with USF’s current foreign Fulbright Faculty and Students.

The Alumni Panel began at 2:30pm and the Celebratory Reception commenced at 4pm. Both events were held in MSC 2708.
