The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistant Programs. While receiving their grant, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with, and learn from the host country's people, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and routine tasks, allowing the grantee to appreciate others' viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.
Applicants must be graduating college seniors, graduate students, young professionals, and artists. Funds are generally used to support students in university teaching, advanced research, graduate study, or teaching in elementary and secondary schools.
