GlobalPittsburgh Welcoming 140 Fulbright Scholars in March, Seeking Hosts for Small Dinner Groups

GlobalPittsburgh will be arranging activities and programs for a group of 140 visiting Fulbright Scholars from more than 70 countries in March, and is currently seeking hosts in the Pittsburgh area to welcome small groups of the students into their homes for dinner the night of March 21.

Such enrichment activities are part of the program coordinated by the Institute of International Education for the Fulbright Scholars, who are currently attending graduate programs at institutions around the United States. This marks the first time that an IIE/Fulbright enrichment seminar will take place in Pittsburgh.

Hosts will welcome up to four people in their homes for the Fulbright dinners. Anyone interested in becoming a GlobalPittsburgh host should contact Gail Shrott, director of GlobalPittsburgh's international leaders program, at 412-392-4513 or at gshrott@globalpittsburgh.org.

"In past years, Fulbrighters attending Enrichment Seminars in other cities in the U.S. have consistently ranked the hosted evening as one of their favorite and most important experiences in the United States," Shrott said. "We expect that we will be sending many visitors to areas of the city/county (north, east, south) by bus where hosts may meet them in central meeting locations."

Those living in downtown and former Fulbright Scholars are strongly urged to become hosts, Shrott said.

  1. Get to know with Fulbright Foreign Student Program Education is like a road that connects

    with every career you dreamed of having. But most of the times you need a ride to get

    into your location. That could be a problem, if you don’t have enough to support your

    studies. But for an outst
    anding student, programs and grants will be available for you. Just like the Fulbright

    Foreign Student Program....FULBRIGHT FOREIGN STUDENT PROGRAM
