USQ staff and students are invited to learn more about the prestigious scholarship opportunities of the Fulbright Program, from Executive Director of the Australian-American Fulbright Commission Thomas Dougherty.

Ambassador Dougherty will provide invaluable insights and information for anyone interested in learning more about the prominent scholarship program, the opportunities to participate and the requirements and benefits of becoming a Fulbright Scholar. 

This is a must-attend session for those interested in pursuing future foreign exchange scholarship opportunities through this competitive program.

USQ’s Professor Geoff Cockfield and Professor Craig Baillie have both had the life-changing opportunity to participate in the program in 2018 and 2019 and the University hopes to see more Fulbright scholarships awarded in the coming years. 

The Fulbright Program is the flagship foreign exchange scholarship program of the United States of America, aimed at increasing binational research collaboration, cultural understanding, and the exchange of ideas. Applications for 2020 close on July 15, 2019. 

A Fulbright award is more than a scholarship – it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering “leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures…”
