                    Yale application process (calendar at www.yale.edu/ofp ). Attendance at an info session is required before booking
                    a one-on-one appointment with an adviser; see

                    (http://www.yale.edu/yalecollege/academics/fellowships/competitions/list/fulbright/index.html ). New Fulbright

                    organizations/programs and make initial contacts abroad.
