NOVA has been the leading community college awarded with the most Fulbright Scholars during 2012/13 and 2013/14 with several other faculty recently awarded for 2015/16.  We hope to keep that pattern going.

The Fulbright Scholar award is an individual application but NOVA’s Fulbright college representative, Stacey Bustillos (sbustillos@nvcc.edu), is available to provide you with guidance in award selection strategies, tips for writing a competitive application and potential leads for international letters of invitation.
