This year's competition offers over 400 awards in more than 135 countries to teach, conduct research, and carry out professional projects. Fulbright awards are budgeted to cover travel and living costs in-country for the grantee and their accompanying dependents, but can vary by host country and award type.
Applications are submitted directly by you and awards made directly to you (not through SU); and are typically aligned with your planned sabbatical.
Note: you can only apply to one award per cycle.
Need help with where to start, identifying awards, or the application process, read on or contact Jenna Isakson, SU's Fulbright Scholar Liaison.
