Want to learn more about the Fulbright Study/Research Grant?
The study/research grant funds independent study, research, or arts projects in approximately 140 countries. Applicants for these grants design their own projects and will typically work with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education. Program requirements vary by country, so the applicant’s first step is to familiarize themselves with the program summary for the host country. You can apply as a graduating senior, graduate student, or as an alumnus/alumna. If you want to learn more about the postgraduate opportunities that the Fulbright program offers, but were unable to attend an info session, you can learn more about the Fulbright by viewing the program first two tutorials (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/tutorials). Additional information for Study/Research applicants is available here: http://academics.lmu.edu/onif/studentresources/fulbright/studyresearchgrants/

Want to learn more about the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship?
The Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship Program fully funds US citizens with college degrees to work as teaching assistants abroad in over 80 countries worldwide. You can apply as a graduating senior or as an alumnus/alumna. If you wanted to learn more about the postgraduate opportunities that the Fulbright program offers, but were unable to attend one of the info sessions in October or January, you can learn more about the Fulbright by viewing the program tutorials (those interested in the ETA program should view the third video): http://us.fulbrightonline.org/tutorials
