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 applicants are encouraged to contact the Fulbright Program Adviser at their most recent alma mater to inquire if the institution can support alumni/ae through the application process. If not, non-enrolled applicants are welcome to apply at “at-large” candidates.

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 visit the Getting Started page for next steps.

Grantee Reports

You may recall from your Orientation materials that the Fulbright Program asks all grantees to complete Mid-term and Final Reports. These reports are web-based and can be completed on-line. To do so, go to the website

Your IIE Program Manager or the Fulbright Commission will send you instructions on accessing your account.

Please note that the Grantee Report System will open in late December of your grant year.


Submission Dates For These Reports Are:

Mid-term Report: By the end of the month that marks the midpoint of your grant period. For most of you, this would be on or about the beginning of the sixth month.

Final Report: No earlier than the month before the end of your grant period. Note: The final month's stipend and Certificate of Completion may be withheld pending receipt of the Final Report.

Information in these reports for is very helpful to us for updating our materials as well as in determining if problems occurred, how communications among the various parties worked/is working, whether benefits are sufficient, etc. So we urge you to take the time to complete the form thoughtfully.

Contact your IIE Program Manager or the Fulbright Commission in your host country if you have any questions or problems logging on.
