Fulbright Support

Applicant Resources

The U.S. Fulbright Program was proposed by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945 and signed into law by President Truman in 1946, following the end of WWII.  The idea behind the program was to promote mutual understanding between peoples of the United States and other countries in the hope that another World War would never happen again.
The Fulbright program has six programs designed for U.S. Scholars, four for Non-U.S. Scholars and five programs for U.S. Institutions. Each program has a separate mission and deadline date; the most popular program for the U.S. faculty is the Core Fulbright Scholar Program, which opens each year in early February and typically closes late August. 
Texas A&M University offered their annual Fulbright Workshop on February 26, 2019 for the 2020-21 award year. If you would like to watch the workshop (1 hour, 21 min) please use the link below. In addition to the workshop, one-on-one coaching is available any time.
