Foreign Language Evaluation

Application instructions state that: "A Foreign Language Evaluation is required for all non-English-speaking countries, even if the Country Summary indicates that knowledge of the host country language is not necessary for most projects. To have access to Form 7: Language Background Report of the Fulbright application, you must answer 'Yes' to Preliminary Question #3 when you create your online application account." Make arrangements with a foreign language professor to conduct the interview and prepare the report. If the required language is not taught at Towson University, the Fulbright Program Adviser will assist you in finding a language teacher or native speaker who can complete the form. In countries where knowledge of the host country language is not required, make clear in the Statement of Grant Purpose your plans for obtaining a survival level of language competency so that you may meet the program's goal of mutual cultural understanding.

Once you have completed Step B of the application form #36 "Foreign Language Evaluator", s/he will receive electronic notification of your request for the evaluation. The evaluator must complete the form online and you will also need to collect a hard to be submitted to the Fulbright Program Adviser by the Towson University deadline and included in the packet for internal review by September 19, 2011.

Provide the evaluator with the information necessary to complete the foreign language evaluation: a copy of the Statement of Grant Purpose and of "Form 7: Language Background Report" from the online application. English Teaching Assistantship applicants should also give the evaluator a copy of the ETA Program Description for the host country.
