Fulbright Welcome Weekend

August 02, 2019

CCWA is looking for internationally-minded host families for Fulbright scholars from around the world on August 2-4, 2019.

Back for an eighth year, CCWA will again be partnering with Ohio University to host 44 Fulbright graduate students in Cleveland for the weekend. All Fulbright scholars speak English and will be studying in graduate programs across the U.S. They are here in Ohio for an orientation program and will come to Cleveland to spend a fun “weekend in the city” with host families. Hosts will pick up their Fulbrighter on Friday, August 2 at Lakewood Park, spend a free day exploring the city and engaging in fun cultural activities, and drop their Fulbrighter back off at Lakewood Park on Sunday, August 4.

The program will begin with a Welcome Picnic at Lakewood Park at 6:00 pm on August 2. If you are interested in hosting a Fulbright scholar, please email Senior Program Officer Katie Ferman at kferman@ccwa.ccwa.org.
