The Fulbright U.S. Student Program seeks applications from highly motivated, open-minded individuals in any academic field and from any background. We evaluate candidates based on their cumulative experience and goals; there is no minimum undergraduate GPA requirement. It is not necessary to be enrolled in a college or university at the time of application. Fulbright candidates should be flexible self-starters with a strong interest in promoting international mutual understanding. Above all, they should be capable of contributing to, and benefiting from, an intensive cultural exchange program.
The Graduate Center will be hosting an Information Session for the IIE Fulbright U.S. Student Program on Tuesday, March 29 at 1pm in Room 9207.
IIE Fulbright Research/Study Grants support independent research, study, or arts projects abroad for periods of 8-12 months are open to US citizens from any discipline who hold at least a bachelor’s degree by the start of the grant period. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards over 1,900 grants annually and currently operates in more than 140 countries worldwide.
In addition the Research/Study grants for independent research, the Fulbright U.S. Student Program includes English Teaching Assistantships, and special programs, such as: the Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship, which provides opportunities for overseas travel and digital storytelling in up to three countries on globally significant themes.; the Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship, which allows U.S. public policy early career professionals and Ph.D. students to serve as special assistants in foreign government ministries or institutions; and the Fulbright-mtvU Fellowship, which focuses on projects that explore an aspect of international contemporary or popular music as a cultural force for expression.
