Fulbright Funding to Teach, Research or Study Abroad


June 1, 2017

Dear Graduate Students:

I hope you will join me in congratulating the record-breaking eight Drexel students, six of whom are at the graduate-level, granted Fulbright funding this spring. As Fulbright awardees, these students will be funded for nine to 12 months to study, research, take on creative projects, or teach English abroad. In addition to the scholarly experience and international recognition, Fulbrighters also benefit from the invaluable cultural immersion.

You, too, have the opportunity to take advantage of this unique and prestigious funding. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for U.S. citizen graduate students—at all levels—and young professionals, welcoming applications across all fields of study with offerings in more than 140 countries around the world.

I know first-hand the life-changing experiences that come from studying, living and learning about new cultures abroad; I strongly encourage you to explore these Fulbright opportunities before the 2018-19 priority application deadline of June 30, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, which must be submitted through Drexel, please contact Director of the Center for Scholar Development Meredith Wooten, PhD, and her team at You may also fill out the Drexel Fulbright Interest Form, or visit the Fellowships Office in Disque Hall 109 during their Fulbright drop-in hours on Fridays between 9 and 11 a.m., to learn more about the Fulbright experience.

Many congratulations, again, to Drexel’s newest Fulbright grantees, and best wishes to each of you in the final weeks of spring term.
