Faculty and administrators are invited to learn about opportunities through the Fulbright Scholar Program and Auburn's Professional Improvement Leave, or PIL, program with a free workshop on Feb. 28 hosted by the Office of International Programs.

From 2:15-3:15 p.m. Amanda Malone, director of provost budget services, will discuss the PIL program, Auburn's equivalent of the sabbatical. From 3:30-4:45 p.m., Peter Raucci, outreach and recruitment specialist at the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, will discuss opportunities for research and teaching through Fulbright. Tips will be offered on crafting a competitive application, making contacts abroad and choosing the right country and award for you. Additionally Raucci will discuss ways to increase the institution's international profile by hosting Fulbright Visiting Scholars.

Both workshops will take place in 111 Lowder Hall. Parking for off-campus visitors is available on the top floor of the stadium parking deck; visitors should let the parking attendant know they are attending the Fulbright workshop.

To reserve a seat, email Andrew Gillespie at by Feb. 25.
