Fulbright awards are life-defining experiences for many students. They benefit from Austrian expertise and become experts on Austria. The Fulbright US Student Program annually provides a diverse cohort of up to 23 students – recent graduates as well as graduate students and PhD candidates – from institutions all over the US with fully funded opportunities to study or to conduct research in Austria. US Fulbright students seek affiliation with Austrian institutions that specialize in their specific fields of interest and come from all disciplines. More than half of the US Fulbright students also are engaged part-time as secondary school teaching assistants or as volunteers with local community and cultural organizations: opportunities that are unique to the Fulbright Austria program.
