Fulbright: Student Opportunities

Research, Graduate Study, and English Teaching Abroad

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers research, graduate study, and English teaching opportunities in over 140 countries. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or nationals at the time of application and must hold a bachelor’s degree by the start of their program.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program. Established in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright, the program provides international educational exchange opportunities that promote the mutual understanding of people from the U.S. and other countries. The program currently awards approximately 2,000 grants annually in all fields of study.

UNT graduating seniors, current graduate students, and alumni are encouraged to apply. There is a single application deadline each year in October. UNT applicants are required to apply through UNT and should contact the UNT Fulbright Program Advisor to begin the application process.
