Alexandra Pett, Mount Royal College
CONAHEC conference proceedings
Year of Publication: 

Contrary to popular belief, Fulbright programs are not just for U.S. citizens! Learn more about the many Fulbright opportunities available, and hear from Fulbright alumni about their experiences. Panelists will critically assess the role of Fulbright and similar programs in their role of encouraging and attracting both students and those who teach them. They will also address the program's potential to enhance mutual understanding among North America peoples, and its role in advancing regional cooperation and prosperity.
