The Student Fulbright Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and coordinated in the United States by the Institute of International Education, is a competitive fellowship program funding study, research or teaching English abroad at the post-baccalaureate or graduate level.

The Fulbright-Hayes Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad program, funded by the Department of Education, provides grants to colleges and universities to support individual doctoral students who conduct research outside the U.S. in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of six to 12 months.

The workshop will be broken down into three elements:

  • 1:30 p.m. – Focusing on the U.S. Student Fulbright Program.
  • 2:30 p.m. – Guidance on writing grant and fellowship proposals.
  • 3:30 p.m. – Focusing on Department of Education Fulbright-Hayes
    Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad funding opportunities.

Past participants in these programs have called them life-changing experiences. Come see for yourself what time abroad could mean for you, and for your future.
