Hosting a Fulbright Student

Tuition/ Stipend Support from the University for incoming Fulbright students:
The Graduate School encourages departments to be competitive with their funding offers to Fulbright applicants. Departments should consider offering Graduate Assistantships to these students, or try to arrange cost sharing for Graduate Assistantships with other departments. A tuition waiver and stipend would greatly benefit these students and continue to help the Fulbright program advance at the University of Connecticut.

Award Benefits/Funding for incoming Fulbright students:
Please note that each applicant has their own unique benefits/funding situation. Funding packages vary depending on the sponsoring country, and are based on the terms set by each partner funding the specific funding program. Some countries may have several funding arrangements, each with varying terms. It is crucial that the applicant and department have a mutual understanding of the student’s Fulbright appointment before the student attends.

Upon acceptance of admission by the student, each Fulbright applicant will receive their “Terms of Appointment and Special Instructions” from the organization who is assisting the applicant. This document will outline the specific funding/benefits/travel details, requirements, and instructions for the student, as well as the department and University.
