Applicants to the Fulbright program must be U.S. citizens when applying and hold a bachelor's degree or the equivalent by the beginning of the grant.
For more than 60 years, the federal government-sponsored Fulbright program has provided future American leaders with opportunities to study, conduct research and teach in other countries. Fulbright student grants aim to increase mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange while serving as a catalyst for long-term leadership development.
The program awards approximately 1,450 grants annually and currently operates in more than 140 countries worldwide. Fulbright English teaching assistantships are now available in 32 countries. Fulbright full grants generally provide funding for round-trip travel, maintenance for one academic year, health and accident coverage, and full or partial tuition.
Applications must be submitted by Oct. 1, both electronically and in hard copy, to the UTSA Office of International Programs, Main Building Room 1.210, UTSA 1604 Campus. The UTSA deadline is set in order to meet the Oct. 20 national deadline.
