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, will hold a bachelor’s degree by the award start date, and do not have a Ph.D. degree, then you are eligible to apply. Non-enrolled applicants 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.
The Getting Started page will provide information on eligibility and next steps.
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 7 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.
If you are a U.S. citizen and a professor or administrator at a U.S. institution and are interested in applying for a Fulbright Scholar Award, you will need to apply through fulbrightscholars.org.
To support your students in applying for a U.S. Student Program award, please connect with the Fulbright Program Adviser at your institution.
Recorded webinars offer an opportunity to revisit webinars you have missed live for additional information on the application process. These are unedited recordings and tend to be 1-1.5 hours in length.
Traditionally webinar recordings are published within a week of the live event. If you are looking for a webinar that is not posted below, please feel free to contact us to find out if it was recorded and available.
Upcoming webinars can be viewed on the Events page. We hope you’ll join us.
