Fulbright information for college juniors, seniors and graduates
Each year the US State Department sponsors U.S. students to study abroad for a full year after graduation. The Fulbright program is one of the most prestigious study abroad scholarships available to students. To find out more about Fulbright and how to apply visit http://us.fulbrightonline.org. AU juniors, seniors and alumni are eligible to apply. The Fulbright program normally cover flights, housing, a living stipend and other costs. Each specific country and program has unique eligibility requirements. Fulbright recipients travel upon graduation (not before completion of your undergraduate program at AU). The Fulbright student program is normally 10 months to 12 months of research (research/study grant) or teaching English as a second language (ETA) in another country. Fulbright is an extremely competitive program so applicants should apply early. Normally students apply during the fall semester when they are a senior. The on campus deadline for Fulbright is September 15th. However, you should work on your application the summer before you apply and meet with a Fulbright program advisor at Anderson University, to help you with the application process.
Speak with the Anderson University’s Center for Global Engagement for application guidelines and assistance in selecting a program. Fulbright recipients are highly sought by employers. Many become leaders in education, government, the arts, economics, the medical field, criminal justice, politics, and business.
