The Fulbright US Student Program provides grants for research, study, or English Teaching Assistantships abroad. Some countries provide opportunities to obtain a complete graduate degree. Applicants must have attained a bachelor's degree before any grant begins, and candidates remain eligible until a doctorate is earned. There is a separate program, Fulbright Scholars, for post-doctoral candidates. US citizenship is required.

Each country has a different number of grants, requirements, and preferred candidate profiles. Review the country pages for more details, and the grantee and application statistics for a recent history on the competitiveness of the country/grant you're interested in. Upcoming and pre-recorded webinars are a great way to get an overview of the program, as is the Fulbright blog. Your Fulbright Program Advisor is available to support you through the entire application process. Please be aware there is a requirement for an internal RPI committee interview prior to the national deadline. This is intended to provide support to the candidate. Contact madige@rpi.edu for details.
