Summer 2021 Fulbright U.S. Student Program Boot Camp

On June 7, we will begin our application boot camp for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Fulbright is the largest U.S. exchange program offering recent graduates, graduate students, and young professionals with opportunities to undertake international graduate study and advanced research, as well as to assist in teaching English in primary – university settings worldwide.

This year’s bootcamp will begin with a special presentation led by the Fulbright U.S. Student Outreach & Recruitment Team at the Institute of International Education. Other boot camp sessions will be held Tuesdays from 2:30 – 3:30 PM 2 Eastern over Zoom and help students in identifying an appropriate country and grant type, as well as preparing a competitive application.
