The Fulbright U.S. Student Program funds one year, international experiences: either individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistant (ETA) positions. Grants are available in over 160 countries.  

Study/research grants fund individually designed study/research projects in international locations. Fulbright encourages applications in all fields of study, including STEM fields and the creative and performing arts. Applicants for these grants propose a study or research plan, design their own projects, and typically work with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education.

English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Programs fund one year positions in a classroom abroad to provide assistance to teachers of English to non-native English-speakers. English Teaching Assistants help teach English language while serving as cultural ambassadors for U.S. culture.

Eligibility: Applicants must have received a Bachelor’s degree before the start of the grant (August 2015) but cannot hold a PhD, so current juniors, seniors, and graduate students who will not receive a PhD before then are eligible.

The Fulbright information sessions will provide an overview of the application process and timeline, as well as explain eligibility requirements and factors influencing competitiveness.

Currently enrolled students MUST apply through the Office of National Fellowships. Please RSVP at
