Fulbright graduate students from around the world will be presenting a wide range of scholarly research topics on Aug. 11 at Bird Library from 9:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

This year, 37 masters and Ph.D. students from 23 countries are attending a pre-academic program at Syracuse University’s English Language Institute before matriculating into their degree programs at institutions across the United States. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of its Fulbright Program and administered by the Institute of International Education, scholars spend this time participating in a variety of workshops, field trips, and textual and oral communication courses. The scholars will incorporate the resources and skills they have acquired during their time at Syracuse into their poster presentations.

“The poster presentations provide a unique opportunity for the Fulbrighters to field questions about their research interests from people who are not necessarily well-versed on the subject,” says David Lind, director of the English Language Institute. “The event marks the culmination of a program that provides them with the confidence they need to embark on the next leg of their academic journey at different host institutions across the country.”
