What is the Fulbright U.S. Student Program


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 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.

Grant lengths and dates vary by country. Please consult the specific country summary for details.

Please join us for this special presentation hosted by the Institute of International Education.Information will be targeted to Minority Serving Institutions. Hear from the experts and a Fulbright Alumni Panel.

  • Students from multiple institutions will be present during each presentation.
  • IIE Fulbright Staff and Alumni Ambassadors will present general information to the entire group about the Program’s history, eligibility, award types, award benefits and application components and tips.
  • After the general presentation, student participants will be sorted into breakout rooms by institutions with their Fulbright Program Advisor to cover institution specific details, such as campus resources, deadlines, and next steps.
