Fulbright at Miami

Fulbright logo

Since its founding in 1964, the Fulbright Program has been the premier international exchange program of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Its goal is to promote intercultural understanding through citizen exchange by funding graduate study, teaching opportunities, and research in more than 140 countries. Learn how you can join the more than 150 Miami faculty and students who have received a Fulbright grant.

Top Producing Institution

Miami was named a "Top Producing Institution" in 2020-2021 for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, by the Institute of International Education (IIE) as announced by the Chronicle of Higher Education. The recognition is a result of 10 Miami students being offered Fulbright grants in a single year. This was Miami's first year reaching this threshold.

Fulbright U.S. Student Program

More than two dozen Miami students are among the 10,000+ applicants to the Fulbright U.S. Student Program annually. Grants to serve as an English Teaching Assistant (ETA) or pursue study or research are the most commonly pursued by Miami students.

The application cycle opens annually around April 1. To apply, students must be U.S. citizens and have earned at least a bachelor’s degree by the start date of the grant. Additional eligibility criteria should be reviewed on the website. Students from all majors, graduate students, and Miami alumni are welcome to apply. 

Students interested in applying are encouraged to review the online information video, Fulbright at Miami University, set up an advising appointment, and check the Miami University page on the Fulbright website for information on the Miami campus deadline.
