2015-2016 Deadlines

This program has a campus deadline of September 4, 2014.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program national deadline is October 14, 2014.


The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates, master's and doctoral candidates, young professionals and artists opportunities for personal development and international experience. Most grantees plan their own programs. Projects may include university coursework, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination.

The program promotes cross-cultural interaction and mutual understanding on a person-to-person basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom. Students interested in the Fulbright should have a well-developed plan of study or research proposal. Proposals/plans of study should clearly outline not only the validity of the proposed subject matter but also the student's preparation for the proposed project.
