MOSCOW, Idaho – Aug. 6, 2014 – The International Programs Office at the University of Idaho has been awarded a grant to host the Fulbright Gateway Orientation for 70 Fulbright graduate students from 40 countries Aug. 10-15, 2014. UI is one of only nine universities nationwide selected to deliver an orientation for the prestigious program. 

The orientation is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of the Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world. It is administered by the Institute of International Education.

The Fulbright Gateway Orientation will include sessions and workshops designed to enhance participants’ academic and student life skills, teach various aspects of U.S. social traditions and culture, and provide networking opportunities with regional Fulbright student and scholar alumni.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Fulbright program and its resources, meet with faculty, students, community members and local government officials, and receive an introduction to Moscow and the Palouse. After the orientation, the Fulbright graduate students will take up their placements at universities across the U.S.
