Fulbright Programs

Fulbright US Student Program

The Fulbright US Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program offering fellowships abroad for one academic year. Graduate (Master's and doctoral) students can apply for a Fulbright to undertake an independent research project, pursue a one year master's degree or teach English abroad. Applicants must be US citizens at the time of application.

Preparation for a Fulbright application begins 9 to 12 months before the application is submitted to Fulbright. USF students apply through the USF Fulbright Program Advisor (FPA) - Lauren Chambers.

The campus deadline is always in August, typically the first week of the fall semester. Students apply a year ahead of going abroad. For example, students applying in the Fall 2017 application cycle, are planning to go abroad starting in Fall 2018.

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the Office of National Scholars holds Fulbright Information Sessions. Attendance at these Fulbright Information Sessions is required if you applying or planning to apply for the Fulbright US Student Program. Please check the Office of National Scholars calendar for upcoming information sessions.
