Workshop: How To Apply for a Fulbright

Want to spend a year abroad pursuing your own project? Get insider information on how to apply and how the program works.

Photography grants are often fiercely competitive, but the Fulbright Program may be the grant world’s best-kept secret. Fulbright Fellowships are not just for academics — every year dozens of photographers and other artists get funding to spend a year living abroad.

This free workshop will be lead by photographer Andrew Garn and Fulbright Ambassador Kristen Erthum, both Fulbright alumni.

No pre-registration is required for this workshop. However, attendance will be capped, so we recommend arriving early to ensure getting a seat.

About the presenters:

Photographer Andrew Garn has diverse interests — as demonstrated by his books on Bethlehem Steel, houseboats, the NYC subway system, World’s Fairs and pigeons. In Russia, he documented historic industrial architecture from the early 1700s to the Soviet era.

In Ismailia, Egypt, Kristen Erthum taught Conversational and Remedial English, English Composition and English Grammar to second- through fourth-year students at the Faculties of Arts and Education at Suez Canal University. She is a law student at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia.
