Florida A&M University (FAMU) welcomes Lora Seery, an outreach and recruitment manager at the Institute of International Education (IIE), who will discuss valuable information about how students can increase their chances when applying for the Fulbright Program.
All majors are welcomed to attend the information session at 1:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, 2020, in Tucker Hall Room 308. From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., Seery will hold an information session for faculty and staff in the Efferson Student Union, Multi-Purpose Room B.
Seery is a Tallahassee native who travels to universities to meet with students who want to learn more about gaining an international education. Before working with IIE for the Fulbright Program, Seery graduated from Sarah Lawrence College and worked in New York as the associate dean of Student Affairs at Bard College.
The Fulbright Program seeks to increase a mutual understanding between people of other countries and the United States. This is a flagship international education exchange program and is sponsored by the U.S government. The goal is for top recruiters to assist in advising resources and opportunities to universities across the nation and gain students that represent the diversity of the U.S.
This program offers students a chance to earn a fully funded scholarship for an international education opportunity.
FAMU Office of International Education and Development Assistant Vice President William Hyndman III, Ph.D., said students can earn an enhanced education when studying internationally.
“In an increasingly interconnected world students need to become global leaders who are able to manage in different cultural situations,” Hyndman said. “Working and studying abroad help to develop those global competencies.”
