The U.S. Student Fulbright program offers grants to conduct independent study/research, enroll in graduate degree programs, or work as an English teaching assistant in more than 130 countries.

Students in the arts are encouraged to consider applying for the English teaching programs, where they can incorporate arts activities into their classroom teaching while conducting independent research and/or engaging in volunteer activities related to their interests (depending on the country). Foreign language proficiency requirements vary but are roughly commensurate to the frequency with which a language is taught in the United States.

The competition will open April 2 with a deadline of Oct. 9 for grants for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. Grants range from 6 – 13 months in length. Students with junior year status and above may apply. It is strongly recommended that prospective candidates begin the application process early, as frequent revisions are essential to create a competitive application.

On March 20 information sessions will be held at the Graduate Life Center, Room B at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 4 p.m.
