Brazil ETA Program Expansion
**Brazil has added 42 new grants for the 2015-2016 academic year.**
We have opened the Brazil ETA program to ETA Alternates to other Latin American countries, as well as identified a number of highly rated, non-recommended candidates from the 2015-2016 applicant pool for consideration. Eligible candidates have been contacted and invited to submit a letter of interest to IIE if they wish to be consider for grants beginning in mid-February 2016. Only those candidates contacted by IIE will be considered.
This award expansion will continue for the 2016-2017 application cycle, more than doubling the amount of awards previously advertised.
For more information about this expansion or the Brazil Fulbright Program, please visit our website or contact Jody Dudderar, Assistant Director, Fulbright U.S. Student Programs (firstname.lastname@example.org, 212-984-5565).
Foreign Language Proficiency:

3 years of college-level study, or the equivalent, prior to commencing the grant
Additional Information: Proficiency in Portuguese or in other Romance language is necessary in order to settle in easily and communicate on a daily basis.
The Fulbright-Hays DDRA competition for 2012 is now open and the deadline is June 14, 2012. Information about the competition and link to the application in the G5.gov application system are available at: http://www2.ed.gov/programs/iegpsddrap/applicant.html
Paul Fogleman, the campus representative for Fulbright Hays, will be holdling application preparation workshops on Tues. May 29 from 2-3pm and Fri. Jun. 1 from 2-3. The workshops will be identical, however, you are welcome to attend both. They will be held in the conference room of the “International Programs” building at 201 N. Indiana Ave. (Between 6th & 7th St., across from Dunn Meadow.)
The various components of the application will be discussed at the workshop and we will review a mock application. To make the most of the short amount of time before the June 14 deadline, students applying for the grant should concentrate their efforts on the narrative statement, requesting letters of reference and securing or updating a letter of affiliation in the host country.
If you cannot attend the workshops and need assistance, please contact Paul Fogleman by email (email@example.com) to set up an individual consultation. Students can also get assistance through the (GradGrants Center http://www.indiana.edu/~gradgrnt/). On the GradGrants web site, see “Workshops” for details about upcoming proposal development workshops.
