Texas A&M offers multiple services to support all campus members the opportunity to pursue a Fulbright Award or host a Fulbright Scholar in your department. Fulbright offers extensive opportunities beyond those dedicated to scholars. Learn more about the Fulbright Scholar, Graduate and Professional, and Undergraduate awards.
Fullbright Scholar Program
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 current application cycle is open.
Faculty interested in finding out more information are encouraged to contact Traci Lacy (email@example.com) to set up a time to discuss your individual goals, Fulbright opportunities, and how they can work for you.
Texas A&M University offers an annual in person workshop that provides information for the upcoming award season. This event is usually held in early March. Global Engagement partners with Faculty Affairs to ensure all faculty are invited. Invitations will be sent out in late January.
