Help for SUNY Oswego Students and Alumni in Preparing for a Fulbright
Applications for most of the grants are due in October for the following year. It is never too early to start planning, even if you are a few years before graduation. Undergraduates can begin seeking help from their mentors and building success through their participation in undergraduate research, community engagement, campus activities, and study abroad. Masters degree students could consider this grant either for completion of their program or as a transition to a Ph.D. program. Early career professionals and others should also review the federal website to explore opportunities (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/home.html).
There are both Research/Study grants and English Teaching Assistantship grants. To be eligible for either, applicants must be U.S. citizens, hold at least a bachelor's degree but not yet a terminal degree, and in many cases (but not all) be proficient in the language of the country. Over 140 countries offer grants to students. Fulbright seeks students from public institutions as well as privates, from all parts of the country, and from diverse social, economic, and cultural backgrounds.
