Established by the U.S. Congress in 1946, the Fulbright Program is the U.S. government's premier scholarship program and is designed to give recent graduates opportunities in personal development and international experience.
There are primarily two kinds of Fulbright grants: full grants and ETAs (English teaching assistantships). Full (research) grant applicants plan their own programs that may include university coursework, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school or special projects in the social or life sciences or combinations. Recipients of ETAs get to teach English at various levels, depending on the needs of the respective countries.
The program promotes cross-cultural interaction and mutual understanding on a person-to-person basis in an atmosphere of academic integrity and intellectual freedom.
To begin an on-line application you must contact the campus Fulbright Program Adviser, Dr. Valentina Glajar. No applications are accepted after the campus deadline. The campus deadline is usually the last week of September or the first week of October each year and should not be confused with the final Fulbright deadline. Please check the Fulbright website for the exact date.
See the Fulbright Program Adviser to determine which type of Fulbright grant you are interested in and the requirements for the various grants. Program descriptions and a wealth of related information are available at the Fulbright Online web site.
The Fulbright Scholarship is highly competitive and the successful applicant must carefully research the opportunities in universities of the country he/she proposes for carrying out the projected program.
Application may be made to only one type of country program (full grant or ETA).
