FULBRIGHT PROGRAMS

English Teaching Assistants: Candidates interested in teaching abroad spend part of their time as a language tutor and cultural ambassador in the classroom, and the rest of their time pursuing personal projects and interests designed to immerse them in the culture of the local community. Teaching experience is helpful, but not required, and knowledge of the language of the host country is required for some -- but not all -- locations.

Research Grants support candidates who have developed independent research abroad. Projects may include a combination of library or field work, University coursework and professional training that takes place over the course of 8-10 months, beginning no sooner than August, 2013.

Applicants for study/research grants select a country, review the program priorities/requirements for the country as specified on the Fulbright website, work with a faculty adviser in their field to develop the project, and secure affiliations in the host country.

The Office of Honor Scholarships provides support and guidance, as well as the necessary endorsement, for all those applying for grants. For more information about Fulbright and other opportunities, please visit the Office of Honor Scholarships website at ohs.vanderbilt.edu.
