The Office of Global Programs will hold a Fulbright Grants Information Session with Walter Jackson, program manager of Fulbright U.S. Student Programs at the Institute of International Education, on Thursday, April 11, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., in 202 Hamilton Hall (Core Curriculum Conference Room). Jackson will provide information on both Fulbright Grants for Study and Research Abroad and Fulbright Grants for English Teaching Assistantships Abroad.
Fulbright Grants for Study and Research Abroad provide funding for one year of study or research in more than 135 countries around the world (outside of the United States). Projects may include university coursework, research in an independent library, lab, or in the field, classes in a music conservatory or art school or a special project in the social or life sciences.
Fulbright Grants for English Teaching Assistantships Abroad provide placements for one year in secondary schools and universities, where grantees contribute to English-language instruction. These grants are offered in more than 60 countries around the world (outside of the United States). Recipients are expected to do small research projects or community engagement activities beyond their teaching responsibilities.
Candidates for all Fulbright grants must be United States citizens, possess a bachelor’s degree by the start date of their program, be in good health and have proficiency in the language of their host country that is sufficient to conduct their project.
