Fulbright Development Program for Graduate Students

FulbrightWould you like to spend a year doing work or research abroad? The Fulbright program for students provides funded opportunities for international research or study. Students can apply for a Fulbright study/research grant in over 150 countries.*

Fulbright applications are due almost a full year before your dates of travel. The campus deadline for travel during the 2017-18 academic year will be in September 2016. So now’s the time to start thinking about your application! In February 2016 the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships will offer a four-part workshop to help you prepare a competitive application.

Graduate students will learn more about the Fulbright study/research grant, how to choose the appropriate affiliate and how to develop a strong proposal. These sessions will be hosted by UB’s Fulbright Program Advisor, Dr. Colleen Culleton and the Fellowship & Scholarship Coordinator, Elizabeth Colucci.

Sessions will be held on February 8 & 22 and March 7 & 28. You can choose from two different timeslots (either 9-10:00 or 3:00-4:00) to accommodate your schedule. Participants are required to commit to all 4 sessions which include preparation of a one-page personal statement and a two-page project proposal. To be considered for this program, students must complete the attached application and return it by January 25th.
