The Fulbright Program provides grants for graduate students, scholars and professionals, and teachers and administrators from the United States and other countries. The flagship international educational program sponsored by the U.S. Government, the Fulbright Program is designed to "increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries..." With this goal, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 250,000 participants -- chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential -- with the opportunity to study and teach in each other's countries, exchange ideas, and develop joint solutions to address shared concerns.
Rider University encourages students to apply for a Fulbright grant for post-graduate teaching or research abroad, and study abroad is a requirement for Fulbright acceptance. This is the most distinguished grant program offered in the United States for overseas teaching, study and research and you are now positioned to apply and win a grant that will open important academic and professional doors.
