  • Abstract:

    This discussion will revolve around Michael Donovan’s experience as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar in 2019-2020 and the important role of being an ambassador for Australia and Fulbright’s international relationship building. This talk will feature an aspect of the Fulbright application process called the personal statement. The personal statement is not about your academic standing or research tasks but a process to allow the Fulbright review committee to see who you are. It may appear to be a small additional element, but it highlights you and how you can fit within the Fulbright values as a ‘cultural ambassador’ for yourself, your institution, your research and the Fulbright program.
