US Student Fulbright Info Sessions
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistantships to be completed in a country outside of the US.
During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
Grant lengths and dates vary by country. Grants typically last up to one year.
Who is eligible?
* Recent graduates Graduating seniors and recent bachelor’s-degree recipients have some undergraduate preparation and/or direct work or internship experience related to the project.
* Master's and doctoral candidates Graduate-level candidates must demonstrate the capacity for independent study or research, together with a general knowledge of the history, culture, and current events of the countries to which they are applying.
* Young professionals, including writers, creative and performing artists, journalists, and those in law, business, and other professional fields Competitive candidates who have up to 5 years of professional study and/or experience in the field in which they are applying will be considered.
*** Competitive applicants to the Fulbright U.S. Student Program will not have recent extensive experience abroad (excluding recent undergraduate study abroad), especially in the country of application.
