One of the oldest and most prestigious international awards in existence, the Fulbright US Student program funds academic yearlong experiences abroad for American university students or recent graduates. Applicants may propose to conduct independent research, pursue a course of study, or serve as an English teaching assistant in over 150 countries. Applicants in all fields are welcome, and there is no minimum GPA requirement. Grants cover tuition, fees and travel and include a stipend.

The two main types of awards are

  • Open Study/Research Awards, through which applicants design their own projects.  Grantees typically work with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education. Study/Research Awards are available to over 140 different countries.

  • English Teaching Assistant Awards, through which grantees are placed in overseas schools to supplement local English language instruction and to provide a native speaker presence in the classrooms.  English Teaching Assistant awards are available to over 75 countries, many of which do not require foreign language profieicy.
