Types of Student Grants

Comprehensive (Full) Fulbright Grants

These grants generally provide round-trip transportation; book and research allowances; maintenance for the academic year, based on living costs in the host country; supplemental health and accident insurance; tuition, in some cases; and language or orientation courses, where appropriate. Comprehensive Fulbright grants are payable in local currency or U.S. dollars, depending on the country of assignment.

These grants do not provide more than a minimal allowance for books and research. Grantees with projects that require extensive research, support, materials, or equipment must obtain funding from other sources for this purpose.

Fulbright Travel Grants

Travel grants are available only to Germany, Hungary, or Italy. They are available to supplement an award from a non-IIE source that does not provide funds for travel or to supplement a student's own funds for study. Travel grants provide round-trip transportation to the country where the student will pursue studies for an academic year, supplemental health and accident insurance, and the cost of an orientation course abroad, if applicable.
