The Fulbright US Student Program funds post-baccalaureate research/study, or English teaching in one of 140 countries. Research/study grants fund research projects, university studies, journalism projects, and projects in the creative and performing arts; English teaching assistantships (ETAs) place students in classrooms. US citizens are eligible to apply.

Enrolled students must apply for a Fulbright award through their home institution. We encourage all alums to do the same. To register your intent to apply, click here.

You must also begin your online application at Embark. It is important that you complete BOTH these steps.

Mia Warren

Alumna Mia Warren has been named a Fulbright Alumni Ambassador for 2017!

Now living in Brooklyn, Mia focused her Fulbright research on the Japanese Peruvian (nikkei) community in Lima. At the Japanese Peruvian Cultural Center, she conducted interviews with elderly members of the nikkei community about their experiences during WWII, a time of intense xenophobia against Japanese Peruvians. Based on these interviews, Mia collaborated with sociologist and actor Eric Aso on a theatrical play script, "La Lista Negra," which later placed as a winner in a local playwriting competition.
