2021 Fulbright US Student Program

News Story

Applications for the Fulbright US Student Program are now open! If you’re interested in pursuing an English-teaching assistantship or individually-designed research project abroad, this is your chance. Submit by Friday, July 16.

The Fulbright US Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. Grant benefits for all Fulbright US Student 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; accident and sickness health benefits; and a 24/7 support line for urgent and non-urgent situations. In some countries, grants may also include book and research allowances, mid-term enrichment activities, full or partial tuition, language study programs, and pre-departure and in-country orientations.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with, and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in-routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of 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. Grant lengths and dates vary by country.

To be eligible for a Fulbright, a student must:

  • >> Be a US citizen.
  • >> Have a conferred bachelor’s degree or equivalent before the start of the grant. (Rising seniors, graduating undergraduate and graduate students, and alumni are also eligible to apply.)

This is a wonderful opportunity for Pace students! For more information, visit the Fulbright website. If you’re interested in being considered as a candidate, please email Jenny Irwin by or before Friday, July 16, 2021. Good luck!
