Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State
The Fulbright program provides a grant to fund students, scholars, teachers, and professionals to conduct research projects in another country. See http://fulbright.state.gov/programs.html for more information.

The campus deadline for UC students' Fulbright applications is August 12, 2013.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program has a preference for candidates who have not had recent extensive experience abroad (excluding recent undergraduate study abroad), especially in the country of application.
Should you decide to submit a Fulbright application, please work closely with the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards in order to build the best application possible prior to the campus deadline.
For most grants, applicants who have had extensive previous foreign experience in the country of application are at a disadvantage, but not necessarily disqualified for that reason.
Note: The Graduate school does not administer nor sponsor the Fulbright Program.
