Fulbright U.S. Student Program

NOTE: The on-campus deadline for the 2015-16 year abroad is September 12, 2014.  Detailed information is available online at the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistantships. During their 9 – 12 month stays, Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others' viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual interacts with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual respect and understanding.

Each year the Fulbright Program offers grants to U.S. students for research and study in nearly all disciplines, including the sciences and Creative and Performing Arts, or to teach English in scores of countries around the globe.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program welcomes applications from graduating seniors, graduate students at any point in their graduate career, and Binghamton alumni (if you hold a PhD when applying, you apply to the Fulbright Scholars Program).

Types of Grants (All grants last approximately 9 - 12 months)

Award Benefits

Grant benefits for all Fulbright U.S. Student Study/Research and English Teaching Assistantship grants include:

In some countries, grants may also include: book and research allowances, mid-term enrichment activities, full or partial tuition, language study programs, and pre-departure and in-country orientations. Please review the relevant Country Summary for specific details.

Grantees with projects that require extensive research support, in-country travel, study materials, or equipment should explore additional funding from other sources to supplement the Fulbright funding.

When and How to Apply

Application Timeline

Application Process

All applicants must complete and submit their application via the Embark Fulbright Online Application. This is where you enter data, upload documents, and register your reference writers and foreign language evaluator.

Among other information, you will provide information on your degree(s), what honors or awards you received, and a listing of any time you spent abroad. The proposed activity for the Fulbright award is presented in a statement; the statements for a research grant and an ETA grant differ.

The application also includes 3 letters of recommendation, transcripts from any academic institutions you have attended, a letter or letters of support from a person or persons in the country you plan to visit (only for research grants, not required for ETAs), plus a language evaluation from a competently trained instructor (if necessary for the country).

During late September, applications are reviewed by the Binghamton University Fulbright Committee. They arrange an interview with the applicant during which appropriately qualified and experienced Binghamton faculty and staff ask questions about the proposed project, clarify the methodology to be used, and ascertain the applicant's motivation for doing this work abroad. They may make recommendations for modifications. The discussion will also attempt to gain an appreciation for the applicant's understanding of the country of interest as well as ascertain how good a cultural ambassador for the US the person will be abroad. Following the interview, the applicant will be given the opportunity to revise and resubmit the application. The Binghamton Committee then submits the on-line application and the campus evaluation to the Fulbright office in New York City in time for the October deadline.

How to Get Started

Go to the Fulbright Program page for detailed information on the Fulbright Program and the application process.

 

A Special Note on Affiliation


Applicants for Study/Research Grants must have a host-country affiliation. This can be with an educational institution or other entity (a library, lab, government agency or non-government organization, museum, etc.). You need an affiliation and a strong letter of in-country support even if you are engaged primarily or solely in research or artistic activity and do not plan to enroll in classes. Applicants are, in most cases, responsible for arranging their own affiliation and providing documentation of the affiliation, typically in the form of a letter or letters from responsible parties at the host institution.

For additional information, please contact Professor Stephen Straight, Campus Fulbright Advisor, straight@binghamton.edu or Janice McDonald, Office of External Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards, jmcdona@binghamton.edu.
