Fulbright Grants for Study and Research Abroad provide for one year of academic study or research in over 135 countries around the world. Projects may include university coursework, independent library, lab, or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination. Some countries support enrollment in graduate degree programs.

Fulbright Grants for English Teaching Assistantships (ETA) provide funding and placements for one year in primary, secondary schools or universities where grantees contribute to English-language instruction. ETA grants are offered in over 60 countries around the world. Recipients are expected to propose small research projects or community engagement activities beyond their teaching responsibilities.

Eligibility


Candidates for all Fulbright Grants must:

  • be U.S. citizens;
  • have a Bachelor’s degree by the start date of their program; and,
  • be in good health

University Affiliation

Current Columbia undergraduates must register their candidacy by completing a brief questionnaire in the Columbia internal system (to do so click "Start Your Application"), then must complete their application on the Fulbright website by the Columbia internal deadline. As required by the Fulbright, all affiliated candidates will then undergo a Campus Committee Evaluation to assess their applications before the national deadline in October.

Recent alumni of Columbia College, Columbia Engineering and the School of General Studies may choose to apply through Columbia using the same guidelines, campus support, and resources as those currently enrolled, or they may apply "at large" (without the Campus Committee Evaluation) by submitting their applications directly to Fulbright by the national deadline in October.
