UAlbany is proud to be a host site for the Fulbright Gateway Orientation program, which is intended to prepare you for your new life as an international graduate student in the United States and provide you with a headstart on American culture, including its academic, financial, and legal systems.

You will spend your daytime hours participating in valuable orientation sessions, touring UAlbany’s unique uptown campus, designed by renowned architect Edward Durell Stone as a unified yet bold monument to education, and exploring Albany’s historic venues, such as the New York State Capitol.
