Fulbright is a research grant administered by the Institute of International Education. A Fulbright grant may be used for graduate study or research abroad, including scholarly research, study leading to a degree, thesis, or dissertation, or for performance study. It is NOT for people looking for ways to pay for a short-term study abroad program.
The application process this summer and fall will be for the award year of 2009-2010.
Applicants must have at least a 3.0 gpa and be graduating seniors or current graduate students. The process is very competitive. Students must be fluent in the language of the country where they want to go. The central question of the application process is, "Why do you have to do THIS project in THIS location?" That is, why can't you do it here in Denton, or in Zimbabwe, just as well?
Any current UNT student who wishes to apply for a Fulbright Grant must do so through the UNT Fulbright Program Advisor (FPA), Mary Beth Butler. The FPA is responsible for assisting and advising applicants, and for arranging for proposal review and evaluation by a campus committee. The committee can make suggestions to make your proposal even stronger.
Non-UNT students will apply "at-large," or on their own. They may receive applications from their regional IIE office. The online application becomes available in Spring.
Interested students should obtain a copy of the Fulbright booklet (shiny one) along with the information packet. These are typically available in the SAC by late Spring.
Every year, people put off meeting with the FPA because their drafts aren't perfect....and they wait too long! The drafts required prior to the meeting are just that, drafts. Just get something down on paper, and we will work with you from there.
Only if they are applying to go to the same country, and to work in the same field.
What Should I do If I Become Sick Or Injured?
- If you have the UNT-Student insurance, go FIRST to the UNT Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) for treatment. If you have other insurance, go first to your primary care physician. If the SHWC is closed or you are not in Denton, please go to an urgent care clinic or emergency room (in case of a true emergency).
- Claim deadline: Make your "claim" for the Health (medical) Insurance company to pay your medical expenses within 20 days of the injury or the first treatment for sickness. The SHWC will file claims for students who are enrolled in the UNT student insurance when they are treated at the SHWC.
