The Office of International Affairs (OIA) seeks a Fulbright Program Coordinator (FPC) for the Teachers College Fulbright U.S. Student Program for summer 2022.

BACKGROUND

Established in March 2008, OIA is responsible for liaising between Teachers College (TC) and international constituencies; overseeing the Fulbright U.S. Student program; and managing the day-to-day administration of international information and communication. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, offering opportunities for U.S. students, teachers, professionals, and scholars to study, teach, lecture, and conduct research in more than 160 countries; as well as opportunities for their foreign counterparts to engage in similar activities in the United States.

BASIC FUNCTION

The FPC will serve as the point of contact for inquiries related to the Fulbright U.S. Student program and will coordinate events and the review process for the 2023-2024 application cycle. This will include designing and delivering information sessions, applicant workshops and alumni panels; regularly updating the OIA Fulbright webpage; and drafting and editing promotional materials. The FPC will also be tasked with organizing the College’s Faculty Review Committee (FRC). This position is remote with the possibility of renewal in AY22-23 depending on funding and availability.

The anticipated start date is May 23, 2022. Please contact OIA (internationalaffairs@tc.columbia.edu), if you have any questions.
