Have you dreamed of working, teaching, studying, or conducting research abroad? Fulbright U.S. Student Program Awards are an excellent funding opportunity for students and young professionals to do just that while promoting cross-cultural understanding in countries across the world. This application season, a number of new Fulbright Awards have been added for the 2023-2024 cycle.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers two main types of grants. The U.S. Student Program for Study/Research provides funding for recent graduates and early career professionals to undertake individually designed research projects that will take place during one academic year (9-12 months) in a country outside the U.S. On the other hand, the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships (ETA) place recent college graduates and young professionals from the U.S. in classrooms abroad for up to 1 year to provide assistance to local English teachers.
In 2023-24, over 2,150 different Fulbright grants will be offered in more than 140 countries. It’s time to find the right program for you! This year’s deadline for U.S. Fulbright Awards is Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time. Be sure to confirm the deadline for the program you choose to apply for on the Fulbright Program website.
