Seniors: Were you too busy last fall to apply for a Fulbright? Now that you are about to graduate, it is not too late to consider applying for the 2011-12 academic year. Fulbright grants for a post-graduation year abroad are available—for U.S. citizens—for over 150 countries. They come in three flavors: study and research; teaching English as a foreign language; creative projects. The teaching assistantships are available in 50 countries, and a new policy, just announced, allows grantees who have held teaching assistantships to apply for a study/research grant two years later. Previously the limit was one student Fulbright in a lifetime (Fulbrights are also available for professors). The grant covers travel to and from your destination, living costs, university fees, and health insurance. The application is due Thursday, October 7, 2010. You also have the option of applying in later years, as many alumni/ae do.

For more info, check out the Fulbright Web site: http://www.fulbrightonline.org. Follow the link to the U.S. Student Program. You should also get in touch with the Campus Fulbright Program Advisor, Krishna Winston, kwinston@wesleyan.edu. Her supplementary instructions, which need a little updating in the logistical details but are accurate for the most part, are available at http://www.wesleyan.edu/german/fulbright.htm

Interested in applying for a loan forgiveness award?

Each year, two members of the graduating class receive the Miller Family Foundation Prize, a loan forgiveness award created to reduce debt upon graduation so that service-minded students can take a job with a non-profit or educational organization, rather than a higher paying position because of the need to manage monthly loan payments.

If you have need based financial aid loans through Wesleyan, you are eligible to consider applying for the Miller Family Prize. The main criteria for selection, in addition to need based loans, is an accepted job offer from either a non-profit or educational organization by the deadline of May 28.

For full selection criteria and application details, visit http://www.wesleyan.edu/crc/students/grants/fellowships/miller.html

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jim Kubat at jkubat@wesleyan.edu

If you borrowed federal and/or institutional loans while at Wesleyan you will be required to complete online exit counseling sessions for each type of loan. Informational packets will be handed out to seniors at the loan repayment presentations on:

 Tuesday, April 20, 2010: 12pm-1pm

Wednesday, April 21, 2010: 12pm-1pm

Thursday, April 22, 2010: 3pm-4pm

 Please plan on attending one of these sessions. All three sessions will be held in Exley Science Center: Room 150. 

The session is very informative and will help you better understand your options during the repayment of your loans.  Representatives from the offices of Student Accounts and Financial Aid will be available to address your questions.

If you have any questions please contact Katie Neville in the Office of Financial Aid at kneville@wesleyan.edu.
