“Fulbright is easily the best thing that has happened to me to date, I get to travel around the globe, make friends, learn about what I love the most, and explore a completely new and different environment. It is both challenging and rewarding and has taught me how to be an autonomous and self-reliant individual.”
”My stay at the University of Central Florida as a Fulbright joint-supervision grantee gave me the opportunity to meet and learn from the brightest minds in the field of Computational Materials Science. My focus now is to extend and share the knowledge I have acquired in the U.S. with my fellow researchers in Morocco.”
“I think that the very idea of being a Fulbrighter has remarkably influenced my research perspectives in the domain of humor studies. My experience at Skidmore College, though it was short, has undoubtedly allowed me to broaden my horizons in how the subject of humor should be approached. It was a cross-cultural experience that permitted me to explore stand-up comedy in a country that is commonly recognized as the birthplace of this art. The activities that I undertook revolved basically around library research, exploring plenty of scholarly works on humor and laughter, and attending live comedy routines in theaters and comedy clubs.”
“If you ever want a life-changing experience, you’re probably reading the right post and certainly on the right path. The U.S. Fulbright experience is very enriching. I had the opportunity to live every second of it and it taught me several valuable lessons in a fast-moving world, lessons which I shall use for both my self-improvement and my country’s on-going growth.”
“Participating in the DAT program was a life-changing experience for me. The school visits, the subjects I attended at Indiana University, the inquiry project I worked on, the people I met and the experience as a whole all contributed to boosting my personal and professional development.“
“My Fulbright DAI experience in the US was undoubtedly one of the most amazing experiences in my life. Its uniqueness is apparent when I develop not only academically and professionally, but also personally.”
“ILEP has significantly changed my life. It was a great opportunity for professional development and personal growth. The diverse spectrum of the program enabled me to connect and work with teachers and officials from different countries. Such human interactions and work collaborations helped to globalize my classrooms in many ways. As an English educator, my stay in the US. has also concretized my cultural awareness.”
“My ILEP experience has helped me improve the quality of my work by bringing about some of the change I was aspiring to achieve but couldn’t. The experience has also helped me move ahead in my career”
“The numerous rewards out of the Fulbright DA program experience would not be possible to list in a few lines. The gain has been such an immeasurable one. Yet, the impact has been mainly on my personal life as well as my professional one.”
“Of course it’s a life changing experience. My Fulbright years have made me see the world through different lenses, meet incredible people and become the passionate entrepreneur that I am today. My kids were born while I was a student in NYC so this experience will sure stay with our family for a lifetime.”
