U.S. Student Top Producer

NEW YORK, February, 21, 2017—The U.S. Department of State has announced the Top Producers of U.S. Fulbright Scholars and Students—those institutions in each Carnegie Classification that had the highest numbers of their U.S. students (primarily recent graduates) and scholars (faculty, researchers and administrators) who received Fulbright grants for the 2016-2017 academic year, in the February 21 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education. 

 The Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international educational exchange program, is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. Since its inception in 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 300,000 participants—chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. In the United States, the Institute of International Education administers and coordinates activities relevant to the Fulbright Student Program and Fulbright Scholar Program on behalf of the U.S Department of State. You can find out more about the Fulbright Program at us.fulbrightonline.org, or on the State Department's Fulbright website.

To find out details on your campus's involvement with the Fulbright Student Program, please contact Tony Claudino at IIE; for details regarding the Fulbright Scholar Program, please contact Peter Vanderwater at CIES.

Congratulations to all those institutions whose students received Fulbright grants this year and especially to those listed in this year's top producing lists. We would like to thank the Fulbright Program Advisers for their successful advising of their students.

Current U.S. Student

United States citizens who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs are eligible to apply.  All applicants enrolled in U.S institutions must apply through their home campuses.  Find the Fulbright Program Adviser on your campus.

If you are an undergraduate student you would be eligible to apply in your senior year.  If you are a graduate student you are eligible to apply to most countries as long as you will not have a PhD degree on the application deadline.

Non-U.S. Student

If you are a non-U.S. citizen looking to applying for a Fulbright grant to study in the United States you will apply to the Fulbright Program for Foreign Students in your home country.

U.S. Citizen but not a Student

If you are a U.S. citizen, hold a bachelor’s degree, and do not have a PhD degree then you could be eligible for certain awards within the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.  Please review the program summary for the country where you would like to apply.

Artist

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program welcomes applications in the creative and performing arts.  Arts candidates for the U.S. Student Program should have relatively limited professional experience in the fields (typically 5 years or less) in which they are applying.  Artists with more experience should consider applying for Fulbright Scholar Program.

Creative & Performing Arts projects fall under the Study/Research grant category and are available in all countries where Study/Research grants are offered.
