Featuring John Denny, UF Honors Program Associate Director
The Fulbright US Student Program offers fellowships for US graduating college seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists to study, conduct research, and/or teach English abroad. A wide variety of disciplines can qualify for these fellowships.
Who can apply for a US Student Fulbright Grant?
-- U.S. citizens: Applicants must be U.S citizens at the time of application.
-- Recent BA/BS graduates: Graduating seniors and recent bachelor's-degree recipients usually propose projects for which they have had some undergraduate preparation and/or direct work or internship experience.
-- Master's and doctoral candidates: Will demonstrate capacity for independent study or research, together with a general knowledge of the history, culture, and current events of the countries to which they are applying.
-- Young professionals, including writers, journalists, and those in law, business, and other professional fields: May have up to 5 years of professional study and/or experience in the field in which they are applying. Those with more than 5 years of experience should apply to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars in the Fulbright Scholar Program.
--Artists and musicians Applicants without a bachelor's degree may substitute at least four years of professional training or experience.
The Fulbright US Student Program has a preference for candidates who have not had recent extensive experience abroad (excluding recent undergraduate study abroad), especially in the country of application.
