If you are a new graduate or will be a senior in 2014-2015, this summer is the perfect time to apply for a 2015-2016 Fulbright grant! The Institute of International Education (IIE), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, is pleased to announce the launch of the 2015-2016 Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program awards over 1,700 grants annually and currently operates in more than 140 countries worldwide. Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships are now available to over 60 countries. Fulbright grants provide funding for round-trip travel, maintenance for one academic year, health and accident coverage and may also provide full or partial tuition. 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.
