Thinking about your future? Think about Fulbright! 

At a time when we face global challenges, international engagement is more important than ever. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants awards for undergraduate and graduate students to teach, study, conduct research, work and more in many countries and regions around the world! The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers opportunities for scholars in all disciplines to advance their research and teaching interests, promote mutual understanding, and collaborate with scholars abroad.  We have opportunities to match your goals and availability.  There are over 450 awards in more than 125 countries, and many are open to all disciplines.  The complete list of opportunities can be found in the Catalog of Awards.  Opportunities range from 2 to 12 months in length and include flexible options for multiple shorter visits to many host countries.  Additionally, some awards provide dependent support for scholars wishing to bring family members. U.S. citizenship is required.
