Fulbright U.S. Student Program

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The program offers recent graduates, master’s and doctoral candidates, young professionals, and artists annual grants to study, conduct research, or teach English outside the U.S.  Recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields. The Program operates in over 155 countries worldwide.

Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program

As part of the Fulbright Foreign Student Program, the Fulbright FLTA Program is designed to develop Americans' knowledge of foreign cultures and languages by supporting teaching assistantships in over 30 languages at hundreds of U.S. institutions of higher education. The program offers educators from over 50 countries the opportunity to develop their professional skills and gain first-hand knowledge of the U.S., its culture and its people. U.S. campuses enhance their teaching of languages and expose students to a true understanding of people of different nations. Like the more than 1,800 Foreign Fulbright Fellows that enter U.S. academic programs each year, Fulbright FLTAs apply to the program through the Fulbright Commission/Foundation or U.S. Embassy in their home countries. The Institute of International Education (IIE) arranges academic placement for most Fulbright FLTA nominees and supervise participants during their stay in the United States.

Fulbright U.S. Scholars and Visiting (Non-U.S.) Scholars

The Fulbright Scholar Program provides U.S. and Non-U.S. faculty members and experienced professionals the opportunity to lecture, teach and/or conduct research in over 125 countries and nearly 600 awards are offered worldwide.  Grants vary by country and award type, and typically cover travel and living costs for the grantee and their accompanying dependents.  Scholars contribute to both their host institution and country and their home institution and country.  Scholars have benefited from an enhanced appreciation of the global impact of their academic specializations, a reinvigorated classroom presence and a desire to become major participants in their home campuses’ internationalization. Fulbright helps faculty and administrators build a “multiplier effect” by infusing cross-cultural perspectives into curricula, revitalizing teaching methods and opening doors for international colleagues and students.
