Fulbright Program for U.S. Students

Established in 1946 by the United States Congress to facilitate cultural exchanges, the Fulbright Program is a unique opportunity for graduate students to pursue an individually designed study/research project abroad.

On Thursday, September 3, the Graduate School will sponsor a presentation for graduate students and faculty advisers on the Fulbright Program. The speaker will be Joanne Forster, a representative of the Institute of International Education, which administers the Fulbright graduate awards. Ms. Forster will speak about the application process and answer prospective applicants’ questions. The presentation will take place in 100 McKenna Hall from 3:30 to 4:30 pm; refreshments will be provided.

The on-campus application deadline for graduate students is Friday, September 18. Applicants will be interviewed by a faculty panel in late September and early October. By October 12, the finalized version of the application must be ready for release through the electronic submission process as well as in hard copy. (The final submission is made by the University’s Fulbright Program Adviser.)
