Fulbright scholar in Nicaragua

Purpose: The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistantships. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.


  • College senior or master's student or recent graduate.
  • Preference is given to those applicants who have resided or studied in the country to which they are applying for no more than six months.  
  • Proficiency required in the written and spoken language of the host country sufficient to communicate effectively and carry out the proposed project.

Award: Transportation, living expenses, minimal book and research allowances, supplemental health and accident insurance, and tuition for study or research abroad for academic year.  These awards are for study and/or research abroad for academic year, including the creative arts.  A proposal project is a requirement for all applicants.

English Teaching Assistantships: Available in thirty-two countries. Proficiency in the host county language varies.  Recipients are placed in schools or universities outside of capital cities in the host country. The assistantships offer similar award benefits as the full award (see above).

Number of Awards: Varies with the host country

Deadline: October 15
