Fulbright Information Session
An information session for prospective 2013-2014 Fulbright U.S. Student competition applicants will be presented by an Alumni Ambassador from the Institute of International Education on Monday, March 26 from 7:00-8:00 PM in Burdine 130.
The 2013-2014 Fulbright U.S. Student competition will open on May 1, 2012. The Fulbright U.S. Student program is open to graduate students at all levels, undergraduates who will have completed their degree by the beginning of the grant period (for most countries, Sept. 1, 2013) and non-students who hold a bachelor's degree. The program is restricted to U.S. citizens. The grants are for study and research abroad, and are available for most countries. Grants are awarded for all disciplines, including the sciences, social sciences, humanities, engineering, and the performing and creative arts. A number of countries also offer grants for those who wish to serve as English teaching assistants.
