Fulbright English for Graduate Studies

Haggerty Library
This activity is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of its Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world. For more information, visit fulbright.state.gov.
This activity is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

Program Description

This three-week online program focuses on academic preparation, research and communication skills, U.S. culture and society, and the technology necessary for ongoing remote learning. The program is held through Drexel-supported learning software and includes a robust, albeit virtual, experiential component to support the academic program.

Welcome Participants

To all Fulbrighters who will join us this summer, welcome! We are very much looking forward to having you virtually join us in Philadelphia as your introduction to graduate studies in the U.S. This will be the English Language Center’s 12th year hosting this program, and we’re proud to be the first step in what will be one of the most important experiences in your life.
