The Fulbright U.S. Student Program offers opportunities for recent graduates, graduate students, and developing professionals and artists to conduct research, teach, and study in 140+ countries worldwide. Over 2,000 awards are offered annually, and NCS Advisors are available to help applicants determine which programs could be a good fit for their goals and interests. 



Applicants can be graduating seniors, graduate students, and recent alumni. Applicants must be U.S. citizens by the application deadline, with a Bachelor’s degree by the start of the grant. Doctoral students may not hold a PhD at time of application.

Applicants should review Fulbright Eligibility Requirements as well as Award Pages in detail for additional country-specific requirements. 


Campus Endorsement Process

We encourage Duke students and alumni to go through the Duke Campus Endorsement Process. The Office of University Scholars and Fellows can endorse all Duke-affiliated applicants, and NCS Advisors are available throughout the spring, summer, and fall for general support, advice, and draft feedback.

To participate in the Campus Endorsement Process, Duke applicants are asked to:

  1. Sign-up for an evaluative interview with the Fulbright Review Committee by August 14th, 2023.
  2. Submit your Fulbright Campus Application by noon on September 1st, 2023.

Members of the Fulbright Review Committee will complete an evaluation and endorsement form for all Duke-affiliated applicants who meet the Campus Application deadline and complete the evaluative interview. While applicants can polish materials throughout September, materials submitted to the Review Committee should be drafts that you are proud of and willing to be evaluated on. The Campus Application will inform your interview and the strength of your committee evaluation.

For more information about the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, please email NCS Advisor Anna Bernard or schedule an appointment!
