The Fulbright U.S. Student Program funds study/research awards or English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Programs in over 140 different countries. Students choose one country to compete in, and then they will undergo a rigorous application process. Over 1,650 volunteer Fulbright Program advisers on campuses nationwide assist in the recruitment and advisement of applicants.
Students competing for the study/research awards should have one or more of the following experiences: research experience, study abroad experience in target country, institutional or organizational contacts in target country and ability to communicate in target country language.
Students competing for the ETA Program should have one or more of the following: experience in leadership roles; student mentoring experience; tutoring/teaching experience; ability to communicate in target country language, which is sometimes not required; and study abroad experience, which does not have to have taken place in the target country.
