Description

The Fulbright Program is the U.S. Government’s premier scholarship program, enabling students to conduct research, study, or teach in over 140 countries around the world. Congress created the Fulbright Program in 1946 with the mission of fostering mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange. There are two basic types of grants: Research Grants and Teaching Assistantships. Research Grants support individually designed projects, or university coursework in virtually all subject areas. Teaching Assistantships offer opportunities for grantees to teach English conversation and American culture in elementary, high school, or university classrooms.  View the English Teaching Assistantships countries  here. Applications may be made for one country and one type of award only.

Eligibility

U.S. citizens who will hold at least a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent prior to undertaking the grant are eligible. Selection is based on the quality of the proposed project, the validity and feasibility of the propsed project, the academic and /or professional preparation of the applicant, the applicant's language skills, and personal qualifications. Preference is given to candidates who have not had prior opportunity for extended study or residence abroad, but such experience does not disqualify candidates. Study abroad experience in the country is not considered extended study or residence and in no way impacts a student's candidacy. 

Benefits

  • Fulbright Grants include 

Round-trip transportation to the host country, funding to cover room, board, and incidental costs, based on the cost of living in the host country and accident & sickness health benefits.

In some countries, grants may also include:

book and research allowances, mid-term enrichment activities, full or partial tuition, language study programs, pre-departure and in-country orientations

See country descriptions on the Fulbright US student program's website.

Though the process is evaluative, all candidates who apply are sent forward to Fulbright. Brown convenes a committee of faculty and deans who review all applications. The campus committee both evaluates and offers guidance to students. After the committee review and interviews, students can make changes to their applications based on the committee's suggestions.

All applicants must submit a complete application to the Dean of the College Office by August 17, 2015, Brown's Campus Deadline. 

The complete application consists of the following documents
