What is Fulbright?

Fulbright is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship international exchange program. Fulbright Scholars receive funding for 9-11 months of international teaching, study and/or research in countries all over the world.

Only U.S. citizens and nationals are eligible to apply. Additional eligibility information can be found here.

When should I begin my application?

The Fulbright Scholarship is one of the most prestigious scholarships available to U.S. citizens. You should leave ample time to craft a highly-competitive application. In advance of the FIU campus deadline, English Teaching Assistantships should spend 4-6 weeks preparing and editing their applications. Study/Research Scholarship applicants should spend 6-10 weeks preparing their applications.

The FIU campus deadline to submit a full draft is September 1. In mid-September, FIU will host campus interviews. The national Fulbright application deadline is mid-October.
