Stories from Fulbright Scholars, and a link to apply for a Fulbright Scholarship

Stories from the Fulbright Program.

I received an offer to read a story about being a Fulbright Scholar in India. That got me thinking. Why not share some stories about being a Fulbright scholar online, for many locations?

So what is this program exactly? Here is a short description of it from the Fulbright Scholarship site:

"Today, Fulbright is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world, supported for more than half a century by the American people through an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress and by the people of partner nations. The program—working with universities, schools, binational Fulbright commissions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector—actively seeks out individuals of achievement and potential who represent the full diversity of their respective societies and selects nominees through open, merit-based competitions. "

Here is a page at the Fulbright site containing stories about nursing and computer science in India, Creative Writing in Japan, and U.S. Studies in Sri Lanka, among others. Here is that link:

And here are more Fulbright Stories from the site.

I myself once took piano lessons from a Fulbright student. I wish I had asked her about her experiences. I think this is a great program, enriching both the student and those around him or her.

If you are interested, here is a link to the Frequently Asked Questions page at the Fulbright site to find out more.
