The Fulbright is an amazing opportunity, it gives you the chance to work, study, or teach in a foreign country. My Fulbright gave me the chance teach English in Sri Lanka, it was a tremendous opportunity.

The Fulbright Application Guide

Over my grant I realized that many people were curious about the fellowship, but unsure of how to apply. I crated a free ebook – Brightful: The Fulbright Application Guide - to help demystify the process. It covers topics like: the Fulbright statement of purpose, the personal statement, Fulbright application tips, the history of international education, and sample application essays.

I want to hear from you about your grant and how the guide helped you apply. Connect with me via twitter.

    Hi Sean,
    What year were you in Sri Lanka? Did you have an ETA or a research scholarship? Tell me about your adventures.
    I taught at the University of Colombo during the academic year 2002-03. While there my husband and I often had the American students and the other American professor stay with us, come for holidays, etc. We found them delightful.
    Now that I’ve retired from teaching at Coe Collge,, I have taken on the National Fellowship Director position. Right now I am in the midst of advising students who are applying for a Fulbright.
    Best, Ann Struthers

      Hi Ann,

      I was in Sri Lanka from 2012 – 2013. I was on an ETA!

      If you go to brightful.ly/my-fulbright you can read all about my adventures. Let me know if you have more questions!

      Advising students must be a fun change from teaching! I hope the guide I put together may be of some use to you in your new role.
