Academic Fellowships

Fulbright Study/Research Award

The Fulbright Study/Research Award offers graduating seniors, graduate students, and recent alumni the opportunity to travel to countries all over the world to pursue graduate study and/or conduct research. Fulbright Students are offered round-trip transportation to their host country, funding to cover room and board, and potential tuition coverage based on the program and host country. In addition to academic study and/or research, Fulbright Students engage in cultural exchange and promote mutual understanding between the US and their host country.
