Fulbright Commission

Fulbright interns with alumnae (Fulbright mentor and Georgian ambassador to EU)

Educational Advising and Program Management Intern

Duration: 8 weeks (starting in mid-June)
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Qualifications: Focus on diplomacy. Knowledge of French or Dutch is helpful.

The Fulbright Commission (officially the Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States of America, Belgium and Luxembourg) is located in the Royal Library of Belgium in Brussels. The Commission administers several Fulbright Scholarship Programs for citizens of Belgium and Luxembourg and the Fulbright-Schuman award to citizens of the 27 EU member states. Grants are available for graduate study (Master’s or Ph.D.), pre-doctoral research and post-doctoral research or university lecturing in the United States. The office consists of four people (Executive director, educational adviser, secretary and accountant).

The intern will work in all areas that the Educational Adviser/Program manager works in. She will help run the advising center and its library by talking to students and answering inquiries about the US system. She will also help update materials and handouts on various subject matters and plan outreach events for the fall. She will assist in the organization of College Night (an event that takes place in early October) as well as updating relevant information on our website. This internship leaves room for the strengths of the intern such as other ideas for long term projects, writing articles for the newsletter, etc.

Preference will be given to students majoring in international relations or with a strong background in international affairs. Any knowledge of French or Dutch is helpful.

This opportunity is sponsored, and mentored, by alumna Erica Lutes ('02), Executive Director of Fulbright Belgium.
