Dear LMU Juniors, Seniors, and Grad Students:

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/

Are you thinking about applying in September?

  • Be sure to visit NISO’s Fulbright resource page: http://academics.lmu.edu/niso/studentresources/fulbright. This page includes information about the LMU Fulbright application process and offers targeted resources for each of the two primary grant types (the Study/Research grant and English Teaching Assistantship grant).
  • Please be sure to take a look at this semester’s Fulbright Workshop Calendar, which is organized by grant & document type: http://cal.lmu.edu/search/events/1?event_types[]=25123. These workshops will provide you will invaluable information about how to craft compelling statements of purpose and personal statements.
  • Finally, take a few minutes to review the LMU Application Timeline (which breaks down the application process) and LMU’s Preliminary Fulbright Application, which interested applicants should submit on or before June 1, 2015. Those students who commit to applying for a Fulbright before June will have the benefit of receiving support from both ONIF and its affiliated Fulbright Faculty Committee.
  • If you have any questions, please email ONIF at fellowships@lmu.edu

We hope to see you there!
