RIO Webinars & Workshops


Join us for brief presentations followed by Q&A on the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. Co-sponsored by the Research & Innovation Office (RIO) and CU's Office of Top Scholarships, this event features Professor Gregor P. Henze, Ph.D., P.E. who holds the C.V. Schelke Chair in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Henze will speak about his experiences serving as the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Science, Technology, and Innovation at CSIRO in Newcastle, Australia (2022), including the application process. We anticipate a Fulbright staff member to participate, as well.

The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers over 800 awards in more than 135 countries for U.S. citizens to teach, conduct research and carry out professional projects around the world.  College and university faculty, as well as artists and professionals from a wide range of fields can join over 400,000 Fulbrighters who have come away with enhanced skills, new connections, and greater mutual understanding.
