Special Academic Opportunities

Fulbright Grants

The Fulbright program exists to enable the U.S. government to increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and the people of other countries by providing funding for graduate study and research in foreign countries.



Most of the grants are awarded for programs of study or research that require an academic year.  Four basic types of awards are available: Full grants providing transportation, language, or orientation courses, books, tuition, maintenance for one academic year in one country, and health and accident insurance.  Fixed sum grants, travel grants, foreign and private grants are also offered.




Applicants must;

  • Be a U.S. citizen, holding a BA degree or equivalent before the beginning date of the grant.
  • Have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country to communicate.




Applicants should obtain application forms, information, and advisement from the campus Fulbright Program Advisor, Professor Martin Sternstein (Phone: 607-274-1494). Competition opens in May and ends in October.
