Award: All grants include transportation costs to and from the host country at the start and conclusion of study, a stipend to cover living expenses, and basic health insurance. Grants may also include other costs such as partial or full tuition and fees, research and travel allowances, and language training.

Eligibility: Applicants must be US citizens, hold a BA (or equivalent) by the time the Grant is to begin, have sufficient proficiency in the language of the host country, and be in good health. Applicants with PhDs will not be considered.  

When to Apply: Applications are usually due to the faculty representative by late September.

Sponsored by the US Department of State, the Fulbright Program was established in 1946 in order to "enable the government of the United States to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries." Each year, thousands of grants are awarded for study, research, and teaching opportunities in more than 140 countries worldwide. There are two primary types of Fulbright student grants. Study/Research grants are designed to support academic exchanges, and recipients are expected to undertake research (either self-guided or in formal classroom settings) and/or professional training, as well as complete an academic project (of study or research) over the 9- to 12-month grant period. English Teaching Assistantship grants place recipients in elementary, secondary, or higher-education settings where they serve as instructors of the English language and informal ambassadors of American culture. These teaching grants are available for many fewer countries than the Study/Research grants (as of 2009, 43 in all), and often (but not always) require at least a basic fluency in the language of the host country.
