The Fulbright U.S. Student Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, is now the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide. English Teaching Assistant grantees come from a wide range of disciplines and are placed in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to the local English teachers. ETA’s help teach English language while serving as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. You can get more information on applying for a Fulbright ETA grant here on our website.
Applicants for study/research awards either design their own projects, typically working with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education, or enroll in one year of graduate degree study. The study/research awards are available in approximately 140 countries. You can get more information on applying for a Fulbright Study/Research grant here on our website.
