for Educational and Cultural Exchange
1946 the United States government has been offering grants to recent graduates,
graduate students and college faculty to conduct study and/or teaching projects
all over the world. These grants usually last between six to twelve months
and cover all livings cost as well as providing a modest stipend. These are
very prestigious awards, and are available not only to graduates of larger
universities but also of liberal arts colleges such as Hope.
During the academic year 2004-05 three recent Hope graduates taught in Germany
and Austria with Fulbright awards (two of who are staying for a second year).
In addition, two Hope College professors received Fulbright awards for this
coming year. In addition, six students received awards for being teaching
assistants in Europe during 2005-06, two of them through the Fulbright program.
If you are interested in an academic year abroad right after graduation, either
studying at a university or teaching English, a Fulbright Grant may be just
what you are looking for! It can be anywhere in the world, not just Europe!
