Summer Advising Workshops

UMBC runs multiple workshops and advising session to help our students.  Throughout June and early July, Dr. Souders holds workshops, called Fulbright Boot Camp to guide you through the Fulbright application process. These workshops are held evenings and on Saturdays, so as to not interfere with your other opportunities.
