CCA has long encouraged and cultivated the marriage of art, craft, social responsibility, scholarship, and research. Together, Career Development and Academic Affairs is excited to host an informational panel on the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, one of the foremost resources for interdisciplinary scholarship for creative individuals.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is designed to support recent graduates, master’s and doctoral candidates, and young professionals for one academic year abroad.
Within the arts, Fulbright considers individuals working in a wide array of mediums including visual fine art, dance, design, craft, film, installation, music, performance, and creative writing.
Chosen applicants will be awarded a grant to conduct research, create a body of work and facilitate cultural exchange with their hosts. “Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.”
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program allows emerging artists to join with other outstanding contributors to their field through impassioned and independent execution of their proposed project.
Career Development welcomes undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni to learn more about this enriching opportunity from a panel that includes the following persons:
Fulbright Ambassador Antonio McAfee
Two CCA faculty members (each a Fulbright recipient)
Barclay Simpson chair of Community Arts and Center for Art and Public Life Director Sanjit Sethi
Graduate Program in Design chair Leslie Roberts
CCA alumna and Fulbright recipient Rebecca Najdowski.
Please join us on Monday, November 12, at 6:30 p.m., in Nahl Hall on the Oakland campus to learn more about the application process.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refreshments will be served.
