Fulbright and Related Grants for Graduate Study, Research and Teaching Assistantships Abroad

Category: Grants / Undergraduate students, Graduate students

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a participating 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 othersí 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. Applicants to the Fulbright Program include: graduating seniors and recent bachelorís-degree recipients with some undergraduate preparation and/or direct work or internship experience related to the project; 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; and young professionals who have up to 5 years of professional study and/or experience in the field in which they are applying.
