The U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, in cooperation with the Institute of International Education, are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019-2020 Fulbright U.S. Student Program application.
The US Student Program offers fellowships for U.S. graduating college seniors, graduate students, and early career professionals to study, conduct research, and/or teach English abroad for six months to a year.

Applicants to the Fulbright U.S. Student Program must be U.S. citizens and hold a bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent) by the beginning of the grant period.
