NOTE: If you work at Maryland and plan to apply for a Fulbright or other international award/opportunity, be sure you first talk to your program head or supervisor to get permission for your absence from campus. If you are a full-time administrator and your job duties do not explicitly include international travel, you should generally expect to have to use personal/annual leave to account for your absence.
