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.

Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowship in Public Health
  • The Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships in Public Health are offered through a partnership between the Fulbright Program and the Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health. These awards were established to promote the expansion of research in public health and clinical research in resource-limited settings.

  • The program is designed for candidates who are currently enrolled in medical school or in a graduate-level program and who are interested in global health. The basic requirements and process for applying for the Fulbright-Fogarty Program are the same as for any Fulbright U.S. Student Study/Research Grant.
  • For the 2021-2022 award cycle, Fulbright-Fogarty Fellowships will be offered in the following countries: Vietnam, Nepal (sites forthcoming), Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda, Jamaica, and Peru.
