Do you want to see the world after graduation? Learn a new language? Live someplace complete different from Buffalo? Conduct research in an international setting? Do something different before law/medical/graduate school? 

Consider applying for a Fulbright award to study, research, or teach English abroad after you graduate. 

Next year, six UB students will be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime to teach/research in Mongolia, Malaysia, India, Germany, Turkey, and Senegal. This could be you in 2020-21 in any of over 130 countries around the world. 

The application cycle for funding academic year 20-21 has just opened and applications will be due internally by the first day of the fall semester. Now is the time to come talk to me, Pat McDevitt (mcdevitt@buffalo.edu), or Megan Stewart (mrp6@buffalo.edu) in the Fellowship Office about applying. 

Juniors and seniors are encouraged to apply. Freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to come talk to us about planning for the future. If you’re in the Honors College, you are probably a very strong and competitive candidate. Why not apply?
