Award summary: Fulbright grants support individually designed study/research projects, arts projects (all disciplines) or English teaching assistantships (ETAs), almost always in a single country. Over the course of their grant period, grantees meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The Fulbright program facilitates cultural exchange, allowing each grantee to gain an appreciation of others' viewpoints, beliefs, practices, and ideas. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding. Grant lengths and dates vary by country.
