Fulbright Student Program Blog


Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers fellowships for one academic year to U.S. graduating college seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists. Program participants pursue graduate or professional study, advanced research, or English teaching in elementary and secondary schools or universities. Each year, approximately 1,800 Americans traveling to more than 140 countries receive either full or partial support from the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

The Fulbright Foreign Student Program enables graduate students, young professionals and artists from abroad to conduct research and study in the United States. Some scholarships are renewed after the initial year of study.

The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program provides opportunities for young English teachers from overseas to refine their teaching skills, increase their English proficiency, and expand their knowledge of U.S. society and values while strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities.
