Thirty-Seven Fulbright Scholars Prepare for Graduate School in the U.S. at MIIS

July 25, 2011

Thirty-seven Fulbright scholars from countries ranging from Madagascar to Poland and Panama to Bangladesh have arrived for a three-week intensive course at the Monterey Institute designed to prepare them for graduate studies in the United States. The focus of their studies at MIIS is on academic English, public speaking and other graduate school skills.

After their three weeks in Monterey, the students will matriculate into master’s or doctorate programs at universities across the United States, where they will be studying everything from engineering to tourism, public health to animal breeding and genetics. “This is a really rewarding group of people to meet,” says Patricia Szasz, ESL Program Director, “they are future leaders of their countries.”

Although the program is intensive, there are also a number of exciting extracurricular opportunities. The students have already toured both San Francisco and Carmel and have other excursions planned for next weekend. They also visited the Monterey Farmer’s Market and will be hosted for dinner by members of the Monterey community this week.
