Seniors and recent graduates: are you interested in spending a year researching or teaching in a country outside the U.S.? Consider applying for a grant through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program!

Applicants must be U.S. citizens with the majority of their undergraduate education in the U.S.; must meet country-specific language proficiency requirements; must hold bachelor's degree by the beginning of the award. SENIORS, RECENT GRADUATES, and GRADUATE STUDENTS may apply. At least 1300 awards nationwide.
Applicants for 2013-14 Fulbright Grants are encouraged to submit a complete draft application (not including supporting documents) by the U of M priority deadline, August 6, 2012. Draft applications submitted by this date will be reviewed by the Fulbright Program Adviser, who will return the application with comments. To begin writing a draft of your application, go to the Fulbright website, http://us.fulbrightonline.org/, open the "Applicants" menu, and select "Embark Online Application."
