Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition open for 2007–08

Through Oct. 2, students may apply for Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants through Temple International Programs.

The federal-government-sponsored Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides future American leaders with an opportunity to study, conduct research and teach in other countries.

The program awards approximately 1,200 grants annually and currently operates in more than 140 countries worldwide.

Applicants to the Fulbright U.S. Student Program 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.

In the creative and performing arts, four years of professional training and/or experience meets this basic eligibility requirement. (Professional applicants lacking a degree but with extensive professional study and/or experience in the field in which they wish to pursue a project may also be considered.)

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program does not require applicants to be currently enrolled in a college or university.

Applications from young professionals interested in an international experience are also encouraged.

Applications must be submitted both electronically and in hard copy to Denise Connerty by the campus closing date of Oct. 2 in order to be received by IIE electronically by Oct. 20 and in hard copy by the Oct. 23 national deadline.
