Intensive English Programs is pleased to announce that they have been
selected to host 35 Fulbright scholars this summer. Monterey Institute is
one of the sites chosen to hold pre-academic orientation for newly arrived
Fulbrighters. The program is designed to cover an orientation to the U.S.
academic system, English language training and field-of-study preparation.
The program is also aimed at building a basic understanding of current
issues in U.S. society and a solid foundation of U.S. social values, both
of which are necessary for successful intercultural communication in the
scholars’ host communities. The scholars will represent a wide variety of
fields of study and cultural backgrounds and will be on campus from July
20 – August 7, 2009. If you are interested in learning more about this
program, please contact the program coordinator, Katherine Braun at
english@miis.edu.

    I hope there will be some kind of welcome reception for the group so we can have a chance to meet them. I have met and gotten to know Fulbright Scholars from around the world and they have all been the most warm, friendly and AMAZING people. Our campus and our city will be a better place for their presence here.
