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 are eligible to apply in the fall of your senior year.  If you are a graduate student, you are eligible as long as you will not have a PhD degree by the application deadline.

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 are eligible to apply. Non-enrolled applicant should have relatively limited professional experience in the fields (typically 7 years or less) in which they are applying. Candidates with more experience should consider applying for the Fulbright Scholar 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 the 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.

Chinese Language Programs for Fulbright Critical Language Enhancement Awards

 

All Fulbright applicants to China who are applying for the Critical Language Enhancement Awards to study Mandarin must apply to one of the language programs listed below. Each Fulbright applicant is responsible for applying directly to the language program(s) of interest in China. Each candidate must meet the language program application deadlines for the fall term (or the CET-Harbin Fulbright Summer Term) and these dates will likely be prior to final notification of the Fulbright Grant offer status.

All Fulbrighters receiving Critical Language Enhancement Awards to study Mandarin in China will begin their grants in the fall term, except for those who have been accepted into the CET-Harbin Fulbright Summer Term. All grantees will begin the 10-month study/research portions of their grants immediately following the completion of the language program.

Applicants with questions on language training programs in China should contact FBstudent.EAP@iie.org
