Discover the Fulbright Fellowship

Discover the Fulbright Fellowship

The CCPA is already gearing up for next year! Specifically, we are beginning to prepare students for the 2020-2021 Fullbright Fellowship applications. Will you be one of the students applying? Read on to discover what the Fulbright Fellowship Program is, who should apply, and where you can learn more!  What is the Fulbright Fellowship Program?  “The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or English Teaching Assistant Programs. A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a participating country outside the U.S. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding. Grant lengths and dates vary by country. Please consult the specific country summary for details.” Source: https://us.fulbrightonline.org/about/fulbright-us-student-program Types of Awards Open Study/Research Awards: With this traditional award, candidates design a research project for a specific country.

English Teaching Assistant Awards: The English Teaching Assistant (ETA) awards match candidates with classrooms abroad where they will assist local English teachers and serve as a “Cultural ambassador for the U.S..” Read more here.
