Fulbright International Education Administrators Award
In partnership with 11 prestigious UK Universities - University of East Anglia, Imperial College London, University of Sussex, Royal Holloway Univeristy of London, University of Birmingham, University of York, Durham University, University of Stirling, University of Stirling, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen's Robert Gordon University and University of Edinburgh - the US-UK Fulbright Commission offered international and higher education administrators from the US the opportunity to participate in a three week long seminar taking place across the UK in August 2013.
This programme is designed to allow participants to collaborate with their counterparts working in UK universities. This new programme helps familiarise participants with the UK's higher education system, society, and culture. Alongside UK colleagues, participants attend interactive briefings, meetings, and cultural events, in order to share best practice.
The programme provides participants with the unique opportunity to interact with UK colleagues and professionals from these host institutions. In addition, participants go on cultural excursions at various sites in the UK.
- International travel expenses
- Accommodation and most meals
- Accident and sickness benefits
- Sponsorship of a UK Tier 5 visa
While a Fulbright International Administrators Award only lasts 3 weeks in length, the benefits do not end there. Receiving a Fulbright Award opens many doors and provides unparalleled global networking opportunities. Over 300,000 Fulbright Awards have been given since the Programme’s inception, and alumni have the opportunity to stay engaged through our extensive alumni networks, including the British Fulbright Scholar Association (BFSA). Alumni also remain connected to the Programme through on-going social and cultural events, volunteer opportunities, mentoring schemes and much more.
