Fulbright U.S. Student Program


The Fulbright U. S. Student Program is the largest US exchange program, offering study and research grants for US citizens who are students (at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral level) or young professionals to undertake advanced research and international graduate study overseas. There are also opportunities to teach English abroad at either the primary, secondary, or university levels.

Approximately 1,800 grants are awarded annually in all fields of study, in more than 140 countries worldwide. Grants are typically for one academic year, but applicants should read the Country Summaries on the Fulbright website for specific information about the countries that interest them.

Please visit Fulbright's Student Program page for more information about the Fulbright US Student Program.

Study/Research Grants enable students and recent graduates to design and undertake independent study programs abroad. Different countries have different requirements, so students should carefully read the country summaries on the Fulbright website for each country where they might consider applying.
