The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is designed to increase mutual understanding between the peoples of the United States and other countries, through the exchange of persons, knowledge, and skills. After finishing a bachelor’s degree, you can apply to one of over 140 countries worldwide to do the following:
- Conduct research
- Complete graduate studies
- Teach English abroad
Applicants are free to apply at any point leading up to or after graduating with a bachelor’s degree. Applications from current BYU students, as well as BYU alumni, must be uploaded (but not submitted) to Fulbright’s online application system by the campus deadline. Applicants will then be reviewed and endorsed by BYU’s Fulbright campus committee before the national deadline.
Contact James Mayo well in advance to make sure that your Fulbright application is ready for campus submission and review. All BYU applications will be reviewed by the campus committee, and all applicants will have the opportunity for a campus endorsement to be added to their final application.
