Twenty-nine Fulbright students from 22 countries — as diverse as Azerbaijan, Benin, Panama and Colombia — are in Davis for a three-week, intensive program to brush up on their English skills and learn about U.S. academic culture.
The students will present an overview of their research topics at an upcoming Global Forum at the International House, Davis, 10 College Park, from 8:30 a.m. to noon Thursday. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact George Sabo at [email protected].
The Fulbright students are here through a partnership among UC Davis Extension’s Center for International Education and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ Fulbright Program. The program is intended to increase the students’ chances of academic success in master’s and doctoral programs at colleges and universities across the United States.
Fulbright programs are intended to promote grantees’ academic and professional development, and serve the overall goal of the Fulbright Program: to increase mutual understanding among the people of the United States and other countries.
