Fulbright Top Producer 2022

Established in 1946, the Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries, through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. Each year USF faculty and students contribute to and participate in many Fulbright programs. To find out about the opportunities available visit: http://www.cies.org/.

USF Fulbright Faculty Advisor

Dr. Darlene DeMarie serves as USF's Fulbright Faculty Advisor. She was a Fulbright Scholar to South Africa and Hungary, and served as a Fulbright reviewer for CIES and for the American Embassy in South Africa. Under her leadership, USF has experienced unprecedented success with the Fulbright Program.

Dr. DeMarie offers a series of workshops during the spring and summer semesters to introduce faculty to the range of opportunities available through the Fulbright Program and to assist faculty with the writing process associated with a successful Fulbright application. Faculty who have completed the workshops and who attended subsequent writing groups have been more likely to be awarded a Fulbright Scholar Award. All workshops are in person, and faculty members are encouraged to attend 4 different Fulbright workshops. You will need to register to attend, and space is limited to 6 people per workshop. For the most current dates of the workshop series, please see the schedule(s) below.

2022 Fulbright Workshop Schedule

Workshops Available:

Searching for the Best Fulbright Scholar Award for You: There are more than 400 different Fulbright Awards in over 130 countries. Learn search strategies to find the best award for you. Every award is different, it is important to find the best match. At USF we do not want to compete with one another, so please attend this workshop to find the best Fulbright option for you.

The Psychology of Applying for a Fulbright: Learn the ways to write the best narrative and the psychology of writing a successful Fulbright Scholar Award Application. Fulbright applications are different from research grant applications, so this will be a new experience for some.

Beginners' Writing Group: The Writing workshops are for people who already have a draft of their Fulbright Award, who know the Fulbright award for which they will apply, and who have attended the “Psychology of Writing a Fulbright Award” workshop previously. In order to receive optimal feedback, participants must email fulbright@usf.edu a copy of their narrative a minimum of 2 days before the workshop. Reservations are required.

Advanced Writing Group: The final workshop in the series is only available to those applicants who attended a Beginners’ Writing workshop and who have completed narratives considered competitive. This workshop is by appointment only. Contact fulbright@usf.edu to register.

All workshops will be held in CGS104 until listed otherwise.
