The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program offers 18 postdoctoral awards, as well as nearly 300 awards that are open to a range of scholar profiles, including early career scholars. While not technically part of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, these awards are open to American scholars who have recently completed their doctoral degree – typically within the five previous years.
