Welcome to Spring International Language Center (SILC) at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville (UAF). We are thrilled that you will be joining us for your Fulbright English for Graduate Studies program. As we have a long history of preparing graduate students and Fulbright Grantees for their academic degree programs, we will be honored to add you to our list of successful Grantees.
The University of Arkansas has a long and intimate history with Senator William J. Fulbright. He not only attended the University, but he was President of the University of Arkansas as well. Because of his experience in Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and much due to the influence of that experience, he had the vision to imagine the potential of the international educational program that holds his name today.
While he was a Senator from the State of Arkansas, he was responsible for the legislation that created your Fulbright Program. We have a statue of Senator Fulbright here in Fayetteville and he now stands gazing at the Fulbright Peace Fountain on our campus . We will happily take your picture with the Senator when you arrive.
