We give our Fulbright Teaching Fellows a warm welcome to the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The Fulbright Scholarship Program is designed to give recent graduates, master’s candidates, doctoral candidates, and young professionals opportunities for personal development and international experience. Most grantees plan their own programs and projects may include university coursework, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, or special projects in the social or life sciences.

When I arrived in the US and then on campus, I was amazed by the hospitality and friendliness of the people in this community. They make you feel welcome and are eager to share with you their knowledge and tips about their town. As a French FLTA, I was astonished to see how helpful, Caring and nice people can be here. I know that this year is going to be a wonderful experience, humanly and professionally! Megann Fedon, French Fulbright Teaching Fellow
Curious and open minds, enthusiastic eyes and warm smiles welcomed me on my arrival at HWS. As an ambassador, I am here to bring my culture and traditions closer to you and I just couldn’t have asked for a better welcome than this! Grazie! Alessandra Bottacin, Italian Fulbright Teaching Fellow
As an Iraqi Fulbright grantee, I feel very excited to teach Arabic and share my culture with the HWS community! Augar Khoshaba, Arabic Fulbright Teaching Fellow
