Fulbright Program

The flagship international educational program sponsored by the United States Government, the Fulbright Program is designed to "increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries..." With this goal, the Fulbright Program has provided over 279,000 participants — chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research overseas, as well as to exchange ideas and to contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.

Fulbright Program for U.S. Students

Tulane seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates can apply for an Institute of International Education/Fulbright grant to take coursework, conduct research, or teach English overseas. Grantees plan their own programs, usually for a period of one year. The application deadline is in early fall (e.g.,TBD for 2016-2017 grants). Please see the Fulbright Programs for U.S. Students web site for more information and contact Tulane’s Fulbright Program Advisor, Dr. Charlotte Maheu (, to begin the application process.

Fulbright Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad

Tulane doctoral students can apply for the Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad program. Students' coursework and proposed research must reflect significant graduate training in foreign languages and area studies. The fellowships support 6-12 months of research overseas in most areas except Western Europe (thought research there on a non-western European subject is possible). Please visit the Department of Education’s web site for the application deadline. 

"The Fulbright Program aims to bring a little more knowledge, a little more reason, and a little more compassion into world affairs and thereby to increase the chance that nations will learn at last to live in peace and friendship."

--J. William Fulbright
