Fulbright Awards can be of great benefit to whoever is fortunate enough to get one.
Is relocating to the United States of America a lifelong dream for you? Do you dream of working, studying, teaching, or even embarking on a worthwhile research project abroad? If your answer is YES then worry no more as the Fulbright U.S Student Program Award is here to grant you such an opportunity for scholarly excellence in the United States and indeed the world.
The Fulbright program offers excellent funding opportunities for students and young professionals to do just that while promoting cross-cultural understanding in nations across the world. This application season, additional numbers of new Fulbright Awards have been made available for the 2023-2024 program cycle.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program basically comes with two main types of grants. First, the U.S. Student Program for Study/Research provides funding for recent graduates and early career professionals to undertake individual research projects that will take place during one academic year (9-12 months) in a country outside the U.S. Number two, the Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships (ETA) place recent college graduates and young professionals from the U.S. in classrooms abroad for up to 1 year to provide assistance to local English teachers.
In the 2023-24 program cycle, over 2,150 different Fulbright grants will be offered in more than 140 countries; and to say that this is the best time to find a program that suits you best under the Fulbright Scheme and then gives it a try would be one of the best things that would happen to you if you fall under the afore-listed categories is actually stating the obvious.
