Grants for Study Abroad and English Teaching Assistantships
Are you interested in learning more about the Fulbright U.S. Student Program – a chance to help support our best and brightest for this prestigious program?
Join us for a briefing and presentation on the Fulbright U.S. Student Program with Ms. Ashley Prather of the Institute of International Education (IIE), which administers the program.
Fulbright is the flagship program for international educational exchange sponsored by the U.S. Government. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistantships. A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.

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.

Fulbright Students Grants are available for:

Recent graduates, graduating seniors and recent Bachelor’s-degree recipients should have some undergraduate preparation and/or direct work or internship experience related to the project.

Master's and doctoral candidates and 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.
