UNH will be hosting two representatives from Fulbright on Tuesday, March 19 in Holloway Commons.

The Fulbright Program is a government program that enables students to travel, study, research, and teach in other countries. Fulbright grants are designed to “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.”

 The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects in ALL MAJORS in both academic and arts fields or English Teaching Assistantships. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.
