Fulbright Grants 

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, the Fulbright Program is the largest international exchange program and supports graduate study and research in over 140 countries. The U.S. Student Program is designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates, masters and doctoral candidates, and young professionals and artists opportunities for personal development and international experience. Several countries also offer English Teaching Assistant positions. Most grantees plan their own programs. Projects may include university coursework, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination.

Prospective applicants must participate in an on-campus interview. Fulbright grants are awarded based on a variety of factors including feasibility of project, academic or professional record, language preparation and personal qualifications. Funding supports one academic year of study.
