The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants that enable students and alumni who are U.S. citizens to spend an academic year abroad for independent research/study or to teach English and U.S. culture. There are also some specialized Fulbright opportunities, e.g. the Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship. Fulbright grants are available to over 150 countries.
The application cycle for the 2017-2018 award year begins this month, which means that current juniors who wish to do a Fulbright in the academic year after they graduate should start their applications this spring. Current seniors and alumni are also welcome and eligible to apply. Colgate provides extensive advisement to students and alumni as they apply for a Fulbright.
