The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is designed to give students, artists, and other professional opportunities to pursue graduate study, research, or teach English in over 155 nations. A U.S. Student Fulbright Grant:

  • Allows for individually designed study/research or an English Teaching Assistantship. You can propose a project and/or study plan that will take place during one academic year in a country outside the U.S.
  • Provides support for study/research/teaching in a single country (for exceptions, see World Region Summaries). You can meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.
  • Facilitates cultural exchange. Through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in daily tasks, you can gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.
  • Promotes mutual understanding. Through engagement in the community, you can interact with your hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom.

The information sessions are opportunities for students interested in applying for the Fulbright Program to receive information about the application process and to have questions answered by UW faculty who have been involved in the Fulbright process, and the UW scholarship and fellowship advising staff.
