Bring the World to Your Home: Share Thanksgiving Dinner with International Fulbrighters!

bordeTREATEDpavocolBy Ron Harvey—The Institute of International Education (IIE) cordially invites you to host one or more Fulbrighters for dinner this Thanksgiving.

Hosting international Fulbrighters is an unforgettable opportunity to network with graduate students from all world regions, foster mutual understanding, and demonstrate Midwestern hospitality. If you will have space at your table and are interested in hosting this November 27, please take a moment complete the following survey by Friday, November 7.

Thanksgiving Home Hospitality, Thursday, November 27

With your consent, Fulbrighters will also be given the opportunity to bring to the meal a prepared dish that is traditional to their home country.

IIE Midwest will contact you no later than Wednesday, November 12 to confirm your guest list. Note that it may not be possible to place Fulbrighters with every home host, so applications will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis.

MORE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE FUTURE. IIE Midwest is also pleased to inform you that the Fulbright Foreign Student Enrichment Seminar will be returning to Chicago this March 19-22, 2015 for the first time since 2012.

The Seminar brings over 140 Fulbrighters from around the world to spend four days in the city. As in previous years, you will be invited to host a small group of Fulbright Foreign Students for dinner at your home or at a local restaurant. You will receive a formal invitation in January 2015, but we encourage you to save the evening of Friday, March 20 on your calendars for the home hospitality event.

Please contact IIE Midwest at midwest@iie.org or at +1.312.254.3208 for more information about either of these opportunities.
