Fulbright Program 2022-2023 | Declare your Intent to Apply now!
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program competition is now accepting applications. Each year, the Office of International Affairs (OIA) at TC supports internal applicants with two awards: the Research award and the English Teaching Assistantship (ETA).
Declare your "Intent to Apply" early
For students interested in applying for Fulbright as an internal (through the College) applicant, we encourage you to declare your “Intent to Apply” (takes only 2-3 mins) as soon as possible so you can receive one-on-one advising on how to begin your application. Please refer to the TC Fulbright U.S. Student Program website for the advantages, additional eligibility requirements, and pre-application process for applying through TC.
For students who do not meet the eligibility requirements for internal applicants, you are welcome to apply for Fulbright as an external ("at large") applicant. However, please note that different application deadlines apply to external and internal applicants.
To learn more about internal vs. external applications and the overall Fulbright application process, please view the Zoom recording of our recent info session (on May 6, 2021). We also invite you to join a virtual alumni panel on Thursday July 1st | 1:00-2:00PM (ET), where previous Fulbright award recipients will share their Fulbright experiences as well as advice on completing a strong application (RSVP here).

On August 6, 2020 the Level 4 Global Health Advisory was lifted. The State Department is returning to the previous system of country-specific levels of Travel advice (with levels from 1-4 depending on country-specific conditions).
Pursuant to the President’s July 14, 2020 Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization, the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) will not operate the Fulbright program in the People’s Republic of China, including Hong Kong and Macau, in the current (2020-2021) academic year or offer awards to those locations for the upcoming (2021-2022) program cycle.
For the 2021-2022 grant cycle, country award descriptions will be updated to reflect this change. All students with applications currently in progress or submitted have been alerted that applications to China, Hong Kong, and Macau are no longer being accepted. Applicants are being encouraged to explore other eligible countries.
