Fulbright Student Opportunities – Italy
Building 103 207
Interested in the area of psychology or linguistics? The Roberto Wirth Fund is a possible host for Gallaudet students interested in Fulbright opportunities in Italy.
Interested in child psychology, counseling or early intervention? The ISTC of the CNR is a possible Gallaudet host for students interested in Fulbright opportunities in Italy.
The cultural exchange between Italy and the United States has been ongoing for more than twenty years. Here’s some of the history:
Any U.S. Deaf or hearing graduate student in a deafness-related field has the opportunity to pursue individually tailored projects in Italy from among these areas: sign language research and teacher training, development of educational materials, teaching American Sign Language (ASL) or English, bilingual education, early intervention programs, interpreter training, production of multimedia tools for education and training, tactile sign research and training of teachers/professionals working with deaf-blind children. In addition, special work proposals are also taken into consideration.
Contact for Fulbright in Italy: Miriam Grottanelli (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your project vs. the needs of the country and who you should list as the contact person or sponsor.
The Siena School for Liberal Arts In the intensive three-week program at the Siena School, American students will have the opportunity to learn Italian Sign Language (LIS) and written Italian, both in class and through interaction with Deaf Italians. At the same time Deaf Italian students will be learning ASL and written English. All students will thus benefit from the possibility of having linguistic models on the premises.

The Siena School offers 3 summer courses of interest to Gallaudet students. In addition, students can attend the Siena School for the Fall or Spring semester.
For more information about this opportunity, visit the Dr. Ceil Lucas, Department of Linguistics at Gallaudet.
