Students seeking a Fulbright US Student Award for the year following graduation will make their application in the fall of their senior year.  They should meet with the Fulbright Advisor during spring semester of their junior year in order to learn about preparing an application.  

It is never too early to begin planning, even if you are just starting your studies.  Undergraduates can participate in activities that will prepare them for this award:  undergraduate research, community engagement, campus activities with international students, courses and events on global topics, and study abroad.  Masters degree students could consider this grant either for completion of their programs or as a transition to a Ph.D.
