Fulbright Study Award

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and other countries through exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. Study Grants are for students interested in either earning a one-year graduate degree at a foreign university, or spending the first of a multi-year degree on a Fulbright. Fulbright also offers Research Grants and English Teaching Assistantships.

If eligible, please follow the steps below to begin the process. Alumni and graduating seniors who fulfill the other eligibility requirements are encouraged to work with us as well.
