Fulbright U.S. Student Program

Are you interested in living and working abroad for a year? Do you want to pursue independent research, graduate study, or teaching opportunities while engaging in enriching cross-cultural exchange? Do you want to make yourself a more competitive applicant for future professional and academic opportunities? Want a way to defer your student loans while figuring out your future?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, you should consider applying for one of the Fulbright US Student Program grants.*

*Eligibility Requirements: Applicants must be US citizens and hold a bachelor’s degree at the start of the grant term; thus, graduating seniors are eligible to apply. Those who have doctorates should consider applying for a grant through the Fulbright Scholar Program. Questions about this program can be directed to LMU’s Office of Research and Sponsored Projects.
