The Institute of International Education (IIE), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition for International Study or Research Grants and English Teaching Assistantships. For more than 65 years, the federal government-sponsored Fulbright U.S. Student Program has provided future American leaders with an unparalleled opportunity to study, conduct research and teach in other countries. Fulbright grants aim to increase mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange while serving as a catalyst for long-term leadership development. Over 1,700 grants are awarded annually 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. Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application and hold a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent by the beginning of the grant. (Note that these grants are for the 2014-2015 academic year.) Grants in the creative and performing arts are available. For more information, visit the Fulbright U.S. Student Program website at http://www.us.fulbrightonline.org.
