I’ve been stationed in Krakow for the duration of my grant researching mosses, and I love it here! Poland has so much to offer. There’s beauty wherever you look.
I think that Fulbright has not only allowed me to learn more about myself as I currently am, but also learn more about what I want to do later in life, and where I want to go from here, and I think that’s the biggest blessing I could have been given.
It has been a few years since my Fellowship ended, but my immersion in Polish language, culture, and daily life has had a durable and meaningful effect on me as a person, educator, and scholar.
I cannot recommend Fulbright Poland highly enough. As cliché as it sounds, any extended experience abroad changes your life.
I spent an unforgettable year in Warsaw on a U.S. Student Research Grant. The knowledge and experience I gained during that time continue to enrich all aspects of my life; I sometimes joke that Fulbright is the gift that has never stopped giving…
Living abroad for a year has been a very enlightening experience and is completely different from the experience obtained through tourism.
