Learn about the Fulbright U.S. Student Grant

Submitted by Kali N. Poenitske

The Institute of International Education, or IIE, will share information on the Fulbright U.S. Student Grant at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24.

IIE Fulbright Staff and Alumni Ambassadors will present information to the students at multiple universities regarding the program’s history, eligibility, award types and award benefits. They will also review application components and share application tips. After the general presentation, students will have an opportunity to learn more about campus resources, deadlines, and next steps in a short breakout session with Jim Hohenbary, the Fulbright program adviser for Kansas State University.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Grant fully funds an academic year of international experience for U.S. citizens and is open to graduating seniors, recent alumni and graduate students. With more than 1,900 awards available, the Fulbright is a terrific opportunity to study, conduct research or work as an English teaching assistant in one of more than 140 different countries.

Students will need to register for the group information session.

The K-State campus deadline for the Fulbright U.S. Student Grant will be Aug. 16, and the March 24 session will be a great opportunity to begin planning in advance of that campus deadline.

Interested students who are unable to attend the session are encouraged to contact Jim Hohenbary, director of nationally competitive scholarships, at jimlth@k-state.edu
