U.S. Fulbright Scholar applications open

The 2025-26 U.S. Fulbright Scholar Program competition is now open. The annual program offers over 400 awards in more than 135 countries for U.S. citizens to teach, conduct research and carry out professional projects.

Grant lengths vary and are specified in the award description. Grant benefits vary but generally include travel and living expenses for the awardee and accompanying dependents.

Interested applicants are encouraged to confirm eligibility, then search awards to filter by region, discipline, length, etc., to find a project that aligns to your field and interest. You can also join the My Fulbright online community for updates and access helpful resources.

The application deadline is Sept. 16.
