Interested in applying for a Fulbright Student grant to the United States and don’t know where to start? Here are some useful tips:
- Non-U.S. Citizens who hold at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent can apply to the Fulbright Foreign Student Program or to the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA).
- The Fulbright Foreign Student Program offers opportunities for foreign graduate students, young professionals and artists from abroad to study, conduct research, and/or teach their native language in the United States.
- Students in all fields of study are welcome to apply.
- As a Non-U.S. Citizen, you will need to apply through the country in which you hold citizenship; either through a Fulbright Commission, or, the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in your country.
- To find out if your home country has a Fulbright Commission or if the Fulbright Program is administered through a U.S. Embassy, please visit: http://eca.state.gov/fulbright/fulbright-programs/program-details-country.
