Pre-Departure Orientations

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, conducts Pre-Departure Orientations (PDOs) in Washington, DC for U.S. Fulbright scholars and students to a number of countries and programs.  Attendance is required by all who are selected for grants to these countries and programs. Travel, lodging and meal costs arranged centrally will be covered by the U.S. Department of State. More information about the required countries and programs will be posted shortly and selected scholars will receive orientation invitations via email.

A virtual Pre-Departure Orientation for all U.S. Fulbright Scholars and Students selected to receive grants will be made available later this spring via a U.S. Department of State website.  Selected scholars will be notified via email when the Website is available.
