College of Education and Human Development graduate students and recent alumni interested in studying and teaching abroad can apply for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program through Sept. 4, 2015.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers grants for individually-designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. Grant recipients live, work and learn from people in the host country, giving all involved a more global perspective and a better understanding of each other’s cultures.
According to Fulbright’s website, the following people can apply for grants:
- Recent graduates. Graduating seniors and recent bachelor’s-degree recipients who have some undergraduate preparation and/or direct work or internship experience related to the project.
- Master’s and doctoral candidates. Graduate-level candidates must demonstrate the capacity for independent study or research, together with a general knowledge of the history, culture and current events of the countries to which they are applying.
- Young professionals, including writers, creative and performing artists, journalists, and those in law, business, and other professional fields. Competitive candidates who have up to five years of professional study and/or experience in the field in which they are applying will be considered. Those with more than five years of experience should apply to the Council for International Exchange of Scholars in the Fulbright Scholar Program.
