Most people take between one and four years to gear up to apply for a Fulbright, so it pays to begin planning early! Fulbright offers Core Scholar experiences of 3 to 12 months in many sectors of the world. It used to be that one could have no more than two Fulbrights in a lifetime, but this rule no longer applies. There is no limit to the number of Fulbrights you can hold. Please consult the Powerpoint and videos below and then contact Melissa Flynn Hager to talk further. Many St. Olaf faculty have won Fulbrights and would be willing to tell you about the impact of their experiences. The key to Fulbright is to start dreaming and planning early, as it can take some time to decide where you want to go and engage a host institution.
Fulbright also offers a host of other opportunities, including the shorter-term (2-6 week) Fulbright Specialist Program, the International Education Administrators (IEA) Seminars and the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program. Please consult GFCR staff for more information.
