Fulbright U.S. Student Program

Fulbright U.S. Student Program

Grants for one year of study, research, or teaching of English in almost any country in the world; this is the U.S. Government’s premier scholarship program. About 1,000 awards are given each year (although some of these go to students who are already enrolled in American graduate programs).  Award: One-year award, typically covering round-trip transportation, language or orientation courses, tuition where necessary, book and research allowances, and living expenses.  Eligibility: U.S. citizen, holding bachelor’s degree by the time overseas project would commence.  If you are an enrolled WU student, you must apply through WU and meet the campus deadline.  Recent WU graduates are still eligible to apply through WU. The process for recent graduates is the same as it is for enrolled students and we offer the same services to alumni. All WU applicants are required to attend a campus interview.
