Fulbright US Student Program
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 10.
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 citizens or nationals of the US at the time of application. Permanent residents are not eligible.
- >> Have a conferred bachelor's degree or equivalent before the start of the grant.
- >> Be in good health. Grantees will be required to submit a satisfactory Medical Certificate from a physician.
- >> Have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country sufficient to communicate with people and to carry out the proposed study/research. This is especially important for projects in the social sciences and the humanities.
Selection is made on the basis of:
- >> Quality and feasibility of the proposal as described in the Statement of Grant Purpose.
- >> Academic/professional record and personal qualifications.
- >> Language preparation.
- >> Extent to which the candidate and project will help advance the Fulbright aim of promoting mutual understanding among nations through engagement in the host community.
- >> Ability of the supervising agencies abroad to arrange/confirm supervision and facilitate research clearance, if necessary.
- >> Requirements of the program in individual countries. In some countries, advanced-degree candidates are preferred, and in some countries, certain fields of study are not recommended.
- >> Desirability of achieving wide institutional and geographic distribution.
This is a wonderful opportunity for Pace students! If you're interested in being considered as a candidate, please reach out to Jenny Irwin via email by or before Friday, July 10, 2020. Good luck!
