What Is The Fulbright U.S. Student Program?

Read about the Fulbright U.S. Student Program

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs.  A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a participating country outside the U.S.  

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences.  The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.

NSU Students & eligible alumni will submit their application by the campus deadline, September 28, 2022, in the Fall Semester. Grantees will be notified in the Spring Semester. Typically, NSU Grantees will commence their Fulbright work abroad in August, post May graduation. Grant lengths and dates vary by country. Please consult the specific country summary for details.
