2019 Fulbright Grantees
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed research or arts projects, graduate degree programs, or for English Teaching Assistantships in participating countries outside the United States. The program strives to facilitate “cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks.” Over the past ten years, Boston University students have seen much success with the Fulbright Program, with more than 60 students engaging in research, graduate study, creative arts project, and teaching across many of the 140+ Fulbright partner countries.
For the 2019 Fulbright cycle, Boston University saw a record 51 applications from seniors, graduate students, and recent alumni. Applicants showed interest in a range of projects and countries and invested a great deal of time refining their applications for submission. 24 of those 51 applicants were named Fulbright Semi-Finalists by the U.S. National Screening Committee, and 10 of the 21 Semi-Finalists were offered Fulbright Awards. Three additional applicants were named Alternates, and they will be offered awards if more funding becomes available.
