The Fulbright Student Program fully funds students to study, research, or serve as an English teaching assistant abroad for a year (no classroom 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, Poland, Kenya, Malaysia, Peru, Spain, Turkey, Taiwan, and Germany (and more!), and we currently have six alums abroad through the program! 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.
If you would like to learn more about the program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by Hagfors 101 to set up an appointment for April or May!
The competition is open to juniors, seniors, graduate students, and alumni in all fields, and a GPA of 3.0+ is considered competitive.

Dear white-bodied colleagues, Are you unsure how to respond when a fellow white-bodied person says or does something with a racist impact? Do you ever find yourself, despite your best intentions, feeling uneasy or tense when the topic of race comes up? Do you ever experience the impulse to fight, flee, or freeze in racialized moments and then struggle to navigate the shame of inaction or imperfect action? Are you eager to build loving, accountable community where we can learn to cause less harm and lean into the discomfort that comes with growth?
