The Fulbright US Student Program is the largest US exchange program providing opportunities for recent graduates (applying as rising seniors), current graduate students and professionals to undertake advanced research, graduate studies, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching in countries around the world. Currently, the Fulbright US Student Program awards approximately 1,900 awards annually in all fields of study, and in more than 140 countries worldwide. The primary focus of the Fulbright US Student program is to facilitate cultural exchange and mutual understanding, as clearly detailed by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945, who was interested in the “promotion of international good will through the exchange of students in the fields of education, culture, and science.”

- Be a US citizen at the time of application (International students should visit foreign.fulbrightonline.org)
- Possess language skills commensurate with proposed project
- Strong academic record, as evidenced by competitive GPA
To be competitive for the Fulbright, students must demonstrate:
