What’s the Fulbright?

The Fulbright is an umbrella organization for many programs joined in the goal of promoting cultural exchange.

Are you eligible to apply?

We work with undergraduate, graduate students, and recent alums interested in pursuing study, research, creative work, or teaching English abroad through the Fulbright US Student Program. To apply for a Fulbright Grant, you must be a US citizen and at least graduating senior at the time of application.

Recent Fulbright winners from JHU have taught English to high schoolers in Malaysia and researched physical chemistry in Germany.

To learn more about the nuts and bolts of the Fulbright US Student Program, visit our Fulbright Study/Research Award, Fulbright Study/Research Award for E. Baltimore and DC campuses, and Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship pages. We will be holding winter information sessions on the following dates:

Thursday, January 10, 12-12:45pm (Gilman 377)
Wednesday, January 16, 4-4:45pm (Gilman 119)

Wednesday, February 13, 5-5:45pm (Malone 228)

Alternatively, you may join us on the Homewood campus for a Fulbright info session in April when our annual application cycle opens. Check back for dates, times, and locations.

If you miss one of these, view our recorded info session for Homewood, School of Education, and Peabody students or our recorded info session for E. Baltimore and SAIS students. Also check out our Fulbright videos, recorded by JHU Fulbright candidates and grantees, about their experiences applying and in country.

To apply for a Fulbright through JHU this cycle, you must submit your intent form by May 14 (for students/alums on the Homewood Campus, at Peabody, and in the School of Education) or June 10 (for students/alums on the E. Baltimore and SAIS campuses). Prospective applicants who miss these deadlines may need to apply “at large” rather than through JHU.

Sasha with fellow studentsThe Fulbright ETA in Brazil gave me the chance to explore many different potential career paths. In addition to the hands-on experience working in a university setting, through my side project I gained important experience in public health research.

Are you an international student or scholar?

The Fulbright also brings foreign students and scholars to the US; we do not advise applicants for these programs. If you are an international student interested in applying for a Fulbright to study at JHU or an international scholar interested in an affiliation with JHU, please contact your home country’s Fulbright Commission or US embassy.
