Fulbright Student Program  

Through engagement in the community abroad, the individual will interact with their hosts in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.  

Applicants must be U.S. citizens holding a B.A. degree or equivalent before the beginning date of the grant. The award provides round-trip travel, tuition, books, and stipend for one academic year. It also applies to course work, master’s or dissertation research. The CIIS campus deadline is earlier than the national deadline should you apply through the university (CIIS alumni may apply at-large). Please find information at https://us.fulbrightonline.org/ 

The CIIS Fulbright Campus Committee is made up of staff and faculty who host campus events to promote the Fulbright Program and who review the Grant Purpose Statement and Personal Statementproviding feedback though a Campus Committee Interview. The CIIS Fulbright Adviser (FPA) is Jody O’Connor, Associate Director of Student Affairs, joconnor@ciis.edu. Please contact Jody for Campus Timeline questions.
