Fulbright Information Session
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide. The program currently awards approximately 1,900 grants annually in all fields of study, and operates in more than 140 countries worldwide.
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 the Fall and Spring semesters, the Center for International Education teams up with the Fulbright Faculty Advisor to host Fulbright Information Session. Here you can further familiarize yourself with the program and ask any questions you may have about participating in the Fulbright U.S. Student Program after graduation.
If you hope to participate in the Fulbright Program directly after your senior year, it is best to begin preparing during your junior year. This is pertinent, because the application process begins in the fall prior to beginning the program the next fall.
