Event Description
* For Drexel faculty and staff *
International research opportunities, whether a short trip to the field or a year abroad on a Fulbright, are often extremely appealing to graduate students as a way to access new data, collaborate with innovative colleagues overseas, work with one-of-a-kind laboratories or equipment, or gain a new perspective on their work. However, the challenges of maintaining a supervisory relationship with these students and keeping them on track to complete their degree requirements understandably gives many faculty mentors pause. This panel brings together faculty with experience supporting doctoral students in pursuing and conducting funded international research opportunities, for a frank discussion of the challenges and rewards of working with students motivated to go abroad. Panelists include:-Dr. Yury Gogotsi, Distinguished University and Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor of Materials Science and Engineering-Dr. Kara Spiller, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering-Dr. Rachel Reynolds, Associate Professor of Communication, Culture & MediaThis event is co-sponsored by the Office of Global Engagement and by Undergraduate Research and Enrichment Programs, which assists all applicants, graduate and undergraduate, with applications for prestigious fellowships and grants for international research, including the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the Boren Scholarship and Fellowship, and the IIE Graduate International Research in Engineering (GIRE) Fellowship.
