The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers research, study and teaching opportunities in over 140 countries to recent graduates and graduate students.

Campus deadline for Fulbright Grants and Fellowships: September 7, 2016

Description:  The Institute of International Education (IIE), on behalf of the U.S. State Department, administers the Student Fulbright Program, which makes fellowships available to approximately 1,900 U.S. students annually to study, conduct research, teach English or train in the creative arts in more than 140 countries worldwide. At U-M this competition is administered by the International Institute.

Eligibility Criteria: To apply for this program through the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus, applicants must (a) be U-M students, alumni, or staff; (b) be U.S. citizens; (c) have completed an undergraduate degree by the beginning of the award; and (d) demonstrate the language skills necessary to complete the proposed project.  Enrolled students are required to apply through U-M.

Deadline: The U-M Application deadline is noon on September 7, 2016. Students may still apply through U-M, and we will work with you to meet the October 11 national deadline. However, those who do not meet the campus deadline forego the benefits of the campus interview.



Information Sessions:  A U-M Fulbright Program Advisor will describe the application and provide suggestions for making your application more competitive.
