Fulbright Programs for International Students and Scholars

Michigan State University has a long history of welcoming students and scholars from around the world through Fulbright and numerous other international exchange programs. Many resources are available to those hoping to join the MSU community, and to those already on campus.


International Students and Scholars on Campus

International students and scholars already at MSU, or those who have been accepted to participate in a Fulbright program on campus, should contact the Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) with any questions about academic advising, housing, visas, or campus life.


International Students and Scholars Interested in MSU

International students and scholars who are interested in pursuing a Fulbright opportunity at MSU should explore the options available to individuals from their home country, as programs vary worldwide.

Fulbright Foreign Student Program

Graduate students, young professionals and artists from over 160 countries are able to study and conduct research in the United States through the Fulbright Foreign Student Program. This program is administered by binational Fulbright Commissions or US Embassies throughout the world.

Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program

Each year, 800 faculty and professionals in the Visiting Scholar program come to the U.S. for advanced research and university lecturing for programs between three and six months. Applications are accepted from more than 150 countries participating in these programs through the U.S. Embassy or Fulbright Commission in their respective countries.

Outreach Lecturing Fund

The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) provides funding for campuses to host Fulbright Visiting Scholars from a wide variety of disciplines for short-term speaking engagements. The OLF award allows a Scholar already in the United States to visit another institution, promoting cultural understanding and collaboration across disciplines.
