Every year, Illinois students from multiple colleges receive Fulbright grants to serve as English Teaching Assistants (ETA) in many different countries. Join us for a workshop that looks in depth at some commonalities to putting together a winning ETA application to help you best portray the characteristics Fulbright is seeking. We plan to have some recent Fulbright grantees on hand to share their application methods. Our goal is for you to leave the session with an outline and even a few sentences to start your statement of purpose essay for the Fulbright ETA application.
You need not know your desired destination to benefit from this workshop. The session is targeted to undergraduates, recent alumni, and beginning graduate students interested in pursuing a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship in 2020-21.
