AU is proud to assist students interested in applying for the Fulbright program. Receiving a Fulbright award is not only a high honor for the student selected but also for Anderson University.
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. 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. Fulbrights normally cover flights, housing, a living stipend and other costs. Each country program, however, 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 or teaching English as a second language in another country. Fulbright is an extremely competitive program so applicants should apply early.
Speak with the Anderson University’s Director of International Programs, who is AU’s Fulbright representative, 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 in business.
Fulbright US/UK Summer Institute (for college freshman and sophomores)
The Fulbright US/UK Summer Institute is a special program to help students who want to study abroad for a summer in the United Kingdom. Students must have at least two years of university studies left to complete to be eligible. Through the Fulbright US/UK program, students who have no travel experience can apply to a summer program, which is fully or mostly covered by a Fulbright grant. (Scholarship and stipend depend upon the program students select.) The Fulbright US/UK Summer Institute is extremely competitive program, so students are advised to apply early.
