Fulbright US Student Program

The US Fulbright Student Program is a prestigious international cultural and educational exchange program sponsored by the US Government. The goal of the program is to Increase mutual understanding between the people of US and people of other countries. There are two types of grants: independent study/research projects and English Teaching Assistant awards. The grant takes place outside of the U.S. for 8-10 months after graduation with a bachelor's degree or during graduate degree enrollment. More than 2000 Fulbright participants live and work in ~140 countries each year, supported by travel funding, a stipend, and benefits provided by the grant. Fulbright opens opportunities for students to achieve personal, academic, and cultural goals to the benefit of the host country as well as the United States. The University of St. Thomas promotes and supports current students and alumni as they compete for this scholarship.
