Dr. Jane Gatewood receives a Fulbright award

Dr. Jane Gatewood, Director of International Partnerships in the University of Georgia Office of International Education, has been awarded the Fulbright International Education Administrator Seminar Award in India by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. 

In March, 2014, Dr. Gatewood will spend two weeks in New Delhi and other major cities in India attending meetings with representatives of Indian universities, private-sector agencies and organizations, as well as government agencies. She will also be visiting university international offices to get familiar with program designs, organizational structures, quality assurance procedures, and credit and degree expectations in Indian higher education. The seminar aims to achieve a balance of topical discussion, knowledge sharing, experiential excursions and exposure to societal/cultural facets of India. 

“I am very honored to have been selected for this program,” said Dr. Gatewood. “It will provide an extraordinary opportunity to learn first-hand about the Indian higher education sector, which is poised for significant growth in coming years, and to strengthen further UGA’s connections there.”

“I am delighted that Dr. Gatewood has been selected for this highly competitive award,” said Kavita Pandit, associate provost for international education. “There is much interest across campus in increasing UGA’s engagement in India and Jane Gatewood’s participation in the Fulbright Administrator seminar will help us learn more about the rapidly evolving higher education sector in India.”

The Fulbright International Education Administrator (IEA) Seminars are designed for U.S. higher education administrators who are interested in spending an intensive two or three week period in one of six countries: India, Japan, Korea, Germany, France or the United Kingdom. Each seminar offers participants an in-depth look at the higher education system, culture and society of the host country and provides an opportunity for networking with international and U.S. colleagues. All seminar participants gain a new perspective on the need to internationalize U.S. campuses.
