Fulbright Program for U.S. Students
The Fulbright Program for U.S. Students fosters mutual understanding between nations through one-to-one cultural exchange via these one-year post-graduate opportunities for U.S. citizens:
- Study/research grants: Pursue graduate study or conduct independent research, or a combination of the two. Special opportunities exist in particular countries in the following areas: business, public health, journalism, and the sciences. Opportunities and requirements for applicants vary by country.
- English Teaching Assistant (ETA) grants: Assist with the teaching of English in primary, secondary or university settings. Placements and requirements for applicants vary by country.
Each Fulbright Student Grant includes:
- Round-trip transportation to the host country
- Funding to cover room, board, and incidental costs, based on the cost of living in the host country
- Limited accident and health insurance
Some countries give Fulbright applicants the opportunity to learn local languages (including Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bangla/Bengali, Mandarin Chinese, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Punjabi, Russian, and Urdu, subject to change) through the Critical Language Enhancement Award, which provides support for intensive language study of three to six months prior to the Fulbright experience.
