Fulbright Grants

The Fulbright Program was created by the U.S. Congress in 1946 “to foster mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchanges.” Regis is proud to offer application assistance and support for students looking to apply to the Fulbright Program. 

Application Support and Guidance

The Fulbright program is highly competitive. As a worldwide program, applicants are competing for approximately 1900 grants distributed across 140+ countries. As such, Regis is proud to offer application assistance and support to students and faculty members competing for a Fulbright grant to ensure they are set up for success.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • U.S. citizen
  • Preference to students who have received the majority of their higher education at a U.S. institution.
  • Preference for candidates who have not resided or studied in the country to which they are applying for more than six months. Study abroad or military duty is not disqualifying.
  • Applicants must hold a BA or the equivalent degree before the beginning date of the grant. Applicants may not hold a doctoral degree at the time of application
  • Applicants must have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country to communicate with the people and to carry out the proposed study.
  • Good health. Grantees will be required to submit a satisfactory Certificate of Health from a physician.

The Fulbright competition opens each spring for applications for the following year. Be sure to check the Fulbright website for specific dates and deadlines.
