Campus Deadline: September 7, 2021
Final Deadline: October 12, 2021 ONLINE, by 2:00 p.m. PST

The Fulbright Program aims to foster mutual understanding among nations through education and cultural exchanges. Administered by the U.S. Information Agency, assisted by the Institute of International Education, each year the program allows more than 800 Americans to study and conduct research in over 160 countries.

The Fulbright program offers you the chance to go to any one of more than 160 participating countries for nine months or more, depending on the program. You may pursue a one-year degree, simply take classes, teach, pursue independent research, or carry out a creative project.

Each of these possibilities carries with it a set of guidelines and requirements. In these pages you will find general advice about applying for Fulbright grants, and about planning and writing your proposal. You are also responsible for keeping track of any changes that might occur to the program in your desired host country after the hard copies of the guide to participating countries are printed and circulated in the spring. So visit the Fulbright website early and often!
