What is the Fulbright Program?

The Fulbright Program, established in 1946, is designed to foster mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchanges. Each year, the Fulbright program sends American students to over 100 countries around the world.

35 Georgetown College graduates have received grants since 1990.

Some of those students have been Georgetown College graduates. These students receive full financial support (including transportation and living expenses) for an academic year of independent study abroad. For the U.S. Student Program, applicants can be graduating seniors or graduate students.

If you are interested, contact Dr. Rosemary Allen. She has been advisor for the program for more than 20 years and will give you extensive help in preparing the applications for submission. The deadline for application is generally in mid to late October.

For further information, check out the Institute for International Education’s web site, which gives detailed information on the program.

If you are interested in spending a year abroad after graduation, please contact:
