The Fulbright Student Program fully funds students to study, research, or serve as an English teaching assistant abroad for a year (no teaching experience required!). During their year abroad, Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing participants to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.
Past Augsburg students have been selected for Fulbright Awards to countries such as Czech Republic, South Korea, Ecuador, Malaysia, Peru, Turkey, Taiwan, and Germany (and more!), and 7 of this year’s applicants have been named semi-finalists. Augsburg’s focus on cross-cultural engagement and community involvement makes Auggies particularly strong candidates who are well-prepared to make the most of a Fulbright experience.
Join URGO for one of our Fulbright information sessions to learn more about the program and hear from past applicants. If you cannot make it to one of the sessions, please contact email@example.com or stop by Hagfors 101 to set up an appointment for April or May. The application opens in early April.
The competition is open to juniors, seniors, graduate students, and alumni in all fields, and a GPA of 3.4+ is considered competitive.
