Fulbright Program

How to Apply - The Fulbright Program


Faculty, staff, administrators, retired members of the CSU community, and adjunct faculty are able to apply for Fulbright Scholar and Specialist grants. The awards vary from a few weeks to an academic year or longer depending on the type. While foreign language skills are needed in some countries, most lecturing assignments are in English.

To view details of the Core Fulbright (including the Distinguished Scholar and Scholar) awards, to check eligibility guidelines, and to apply online, please visit the Fulbright Scholar website. These awards are administered by IIE.  For assistance and advice on the application process, please connect with IIE  or access upcoming information sessions under "News and Events" at the top right of their webpage. The Fulbright Scholar application deadline is September 15. Over 400 awards offer more than 800 grants annually. See the Catalog of Awards for available opportunities. 

The Fulbright Specialist Program is administrated by World Learning. Please visit their website or https://fulbrightspecialist.worldlearning.org/the-fulbright-specialist-program/ There are 6-7 rolling application deadlines throughout the year. Once approved to join the eligible roster, Specialists can remain on the list for up to three years until they are selected to serve.


Any CSU student or alumnus is welcome to apply for a full grant to study, conduct research and/or teach English abroad in one of approximately 140 participating countries worldwide. Please visit the U.S. Student Fulbright Program website for details. The internal application deadline is September 15.
