The University of Connecticut Fulbright Scholarship Committee is a standing committee of the University, chaired by Dr. Elizabeth Mahan, the University's officially designated Fulbright Program Advisor. The Fulbright Program Advisor recruits and counsels student and faculty applicants for the various Fulbright programs. She serves as Project Manager for Fulbright-Hays Training Grants (Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Program and Faculty Research Abroad Program) and, working with the members of the Fulbright Scholarship Committee, evaluates and rates applications for Fulbright Grants for graduate study and research abroad.
