The highly competitive Fulbright U.S. Student Program allows participants to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, and teaching in more than 150 countries. This year, 1,600 students were chosen from over 11,000 applicants.
The Fulbright Program aims to increase mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and those in their host countries. There are two main types of Fulbright grants for students: The Research/Study Fulbright Award and the English Teaching Assistant Fulbright Award. Winners receive funding and serve overseas for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Three campus events (August 25 and 27; September 2) have been created to assist applicants, see http://international.ua.edu/. The UA campus deadline for applications is September 8, 2015.
