Students can begin planning during their undergraduate years, and apply as soon as their senior fall for awards to travel following graduation. To help students develop competitive applications, MSU offers advising to students who are applying for Fulbright programs.


MSU Faculty and Administrators

Fulbright offers a variety of programs for faculty, administrators, and professionals, from research and lecture positions to specialized seminars for administrators. 

There are also several opportunities for campus units to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars and professionals to conduct research and give instruction here at MSU.
