MSU Students

There are many Fulbright opportunities for recent MSU graduates and current graduate students, including research projects, English teaching, and graduate study programs. 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. Working closely with their departments and Colleges, faculty apply for Fulbright grants independently, but are welcome to contact the MSU Fulbright Program Adviser for individual consultation.

There are also Fulbright opportunities to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars and professionals to conduct research and give instruction here at MSU. See the U.S. institutions page.

International Students and Scholars

International students and scholars already at MSU, or those who are interested in pursuing a Fulbright opportunity at MSU, should contact the Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) with any questions about academic advising, housing, visas, or campus life. MSU hosts numerous Fulbright grantees each year, including students, scholars, researchers, and more.
