Fulbright Scholars Weekend in CLE

Fulbright Scholars Weekend in CLE
Friday, August 09, 2013 5:00 PM to Sunday, August 11, 2013 3:00 PM

CCWA is organizing a weekend home-stay for approximately 40 Fulbrighters for the weekend of August 9-11, 2013.

The students will be studying for three weeks at Ohio University in Athens on a Pre-Academic Training Program. They will then go on to universities throughout the U.S. for either graduate degrees or research assistantships. Participants are from all over the world and have high levels of English proficiency.

The Fulbright Scholars are in the age range of 25-35 years old. Local volunteers will provide accommodations, a few meals and show them all the fun activities that Cleveland has to offer!

For more information please contact Ryan Ouellette, Program Officer, at 216.255.9008 or rouellette@ccwa.org.

A mainstay of America’s public-diplomacy efforts, the Fulbright Foreign Student Program brings citizens of other countries to the United States for Master’s degree or Ph.D. study at U.S. universities or other appropriate institutions. The program has brought some of the world’s finest minds to U.S. campuses and offers program participants insight into U.S. society and values.

Many foreign Fulbright grantees are early-career professionals who will return to take leadership positions in their home countries, often working at universities or in government service.

More than 1,800 new Foreign Fulbright Fellows enter U.S. academic programs each year.  To sign up as a Fulbright weekend host, please fill out this form: http://fs4.formsite.com/ccwa/form11/index.html

International Visitors Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through the Council's short and long-term exchange programs. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, International Visitors hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs have been identified by U.S. embassies abroad as emerging leaders in their fields. The Council's staff and volunteer "citizen diplomats" organize professional meetings, cultural events and home visits for program participants.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio's commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Ryan Ouellette, International Visitors Program Officer, at rouellette@ccwa.org
