Fulbright U.S. Student Program

The Fulbright program promotes mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange. Students study, research, engage in creative arts practice, intern in public policy, study contemporary music and document their research in multimedia formats, or teach English and U.S. American culture in more than 150 countries. Awards are for graduating seniors, current graduate students, and alumni (U.S. citizenship required). Alumni are eligible to apply through the UO for up to three years beyond graduation, unless you have subsequently matriculated at another US university. Please note that all currently enrolled students (as of the fall term in which the deadline falls) must apply through the UO by the internal deadline, and that all items are due at this date.
