MK Foltz: "FULBRIGHT: A prestigious yet attainable award: What it's really like to get a Fulbright: Getting them, performing them, and serving as a panelist"

Saturday, March 09 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Red Lacquer

Although many visual artists apply, it is somewhat uncommon to receive applications from photographers. As a four-year recipient and six-year panelist, I have often asked myself, why? I want to share some reasons I think this may be the case and suggest strategies for making photographers' applications more competitive. I will point out the strengths many of my fellow photo educators possess, but which are often overlooked or not fully articulated within the application process. And I also will discuss the challenge posed for visual artists that one application must serve all disciplines, and outline unanticipated rewards of Fulbright participation.
