Here are some resources you might explore in your quest to seek funding for international graduate-level research or study. Some of the better known programs are listed here (but don’t limit yourself to these):
U.S. Student Fulbright Program is the largest and most prestigious U.S. government international exchange program. It offers opportunities for students to undertake international graduate study or research, or to teach English overseas.
Current CU-Boulder students who wish to apply for a Fulbright should contact Deborah Viles (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Top Scholarship Office. There are also extensive resources on the Fulbright web site (http://us.fulbrightonline.org/home.html) that we encourage you to take advantage of.
Boren Fellowships provide up to $30,000 to U.S. graduate students to add an international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency. Boren Fellowships support study and research in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests, including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Please contact the Boren Awards staff at email@example.com or 1-800-618-NSEP with any questions. If you would like advice on your project or application, you may also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-492-6016.
