Student Fulbright Program

"The U.S. Student Fulbright Program is designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates, master's and doctoral candidates, and young professional and artists opportunities for personal development and international experience. Most grantees plan their own programs. Projects may include university coursework, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination. Recent projects have involved cancer research in the UK, free market development in Mauritius, women's rights in Chile, and contemporary artistic expression in India.

Along with opportunities for intellectual, professional, and artistic growth, the Fulbright Program offers invaluable opportunities to meet and work with people of the host country, sharing daily life as well as professional and creative insights. The program promotes cross-cultural interaction and mutual understanding on a person-to-person basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom. The best way to appreciate others' viewpoints, their beliefs, the way they think, and the way they do things, is to interact with them directly on an individual basis---work with them, live with them, teach with them, and learn from them." (Fulbright U.S. Student Program Booklet, 1999-2000, p. 5)
