Visiting Fulbright Students

The Fulbright program for incoming students requires the collaboration of many partners, including the student’s placement organization, the Graduate School, and the academic department that is interested in hosting the student. IIE, LASPAU, or AMIDEAST assists each student with their application process and coordinates funding opportunities. After the application has been submitted, a placement specialist from one of these organizations will contact the Graduate School and the academic department about the student’s interest in study at UConn. Acceptance of Admission offers by Fulbright applicants is usually complete by April 15.

For general questions about hosting a visiting Fulbrighter, please contact Meg Drakos ( at the Graduate School.

Arrival at UConn

Incoming Fulbright foreign students should review the pre-arrival information available at International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) and should attend their “International Graduate Student Orientation.”
