German-American Fulbright Program at LSU

Welcome to the 2021 German-American Fulbright Program at LSU: Leaders in Entrepreneurship. The College of Engineering is pleased to welcome German Fulbright students to its first virtual exchange program! We are partnering with the E. J. Ourso College of Business to introduce participants to LSU’s engineering courses of study and how they are connected to entrepreneurship.

This program will be held 100% online, featuring real-time interactions with LSU faculty, staff, and students, and local industry representatives and entrepreneurs. Activities will include lectures, presentations, panel discussions, and virtual site visits with relevant partners.

Each participant will be paired with an LSU student to serve as a “buddy” throughout the virtual program. Buddies will be recruited from the Society of Peer Mentors student organization (SPM). Several virtual social events with buddies will be facilitated in addition to one-on-one online meetings.
