Apply for a Fulbright Fellowship

Aug. 18, 2018

Are you graduating this coming May and still are uncertain as to what you will do? How would you like to spend an entire year abroad, in the country of your choice, either teaching English or doing original research? If doing either of those things appeals to you, then please apply for a Fulbright Fellowship! 

The program is designed to enhance intercultural understanding and is available for US scholars and recent graduates to go to one of 155 countries.  Former Fulbright fellows include 57 recipients of the Nobel Prize, 70 MacArthur Foundation Fellows and 82 recipients of Pulitzer Prizes. Thirty-seven Fulbright alumni have served as heads of state or government in countries around the world.  A Fulbright on your resume will be extremely beneficial, no matter what career aspirations you may have. Here is an article from the Wildcat about our Honors College graduates who spent a year in Brazil on a recent Fulbright fellowship:
