Join us for USF’s third annual Fulbright Day! Held on Thursday, April 9, 2020, USF
Fulbright Day is a campus wide event that celebrates international education through
USF’s Fulbright legacy with the Fulbright Scholar Program (for US and foreign Faculty)
and the Fulbright Student Program (for US and foreign Students).
Recently, USF was named a TOP PRODUCING INSTITUTION for Fulbright US Scholars for 2019-2020, with 9 USF faculty members receiving Fulbright’s!
On April 9, two events will be held to celebrate USF Fulbright Day: a USF Fulbright Student Alumni Panel and a Celebratory Reception
The Alumni Panel will feature USF student alumni sharing their Fulbright experiences, including why they applied, and how a Fulbright impacted their career goals.
Panelists will include:
Jonathan Capps – Fulbright Alumni Ambassador – Creative Arts Award Recipient to Finland
Margeaux Chavez - Fulbright English Teaching Grant Recipient to Germany
Francesca (Frankie) Dunn - Foreign Fulbright Student Recipient Studying in the US from the United Kingdom
Leslie Elsasser - Fulbright Research Grant Recipient to India
Claire Gorey - Fulbright Research Grant Recipient to The Netherlands
Natalie Kass – Fulbright English Teaching Grant Recipient to Macau
Katherine (Kat) Lewis - Fulbright Research Grant Recipient to South Korea
The Celebratory Reception will be a chance for students, faculty and staff to network and celebrate USF and Senator J. William Fulbright, as April 9 is Senator Fulbright’s Birthday! Former Faculty and Student Fulbright alumni will attend, as will USF’s current foreign Fulbright Faculty and Students.
The Alumni Panel will begin at 2:30pm and the Celebratory Reception will begin at 4pm. Both events will be held in MSC 2708.
