UCLA is one of the top producing institutions of Fulbright U.S. Student Program recipients.

If you are interested in traveling abroad for study or research in 2019-2020 or in 2020-2021, plan to attend a Fulbright information session. There are two Fulbright programs available. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is for all graduating seniors and graduate students in all fields and is administered for the U.S. Department of State by the Institute of International Education (IIE). The next competition will be for the 2020-2021 cycle. The Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad (DDRA) Program is for doctoral candidates in foreign language or area studies to conduct dissertation research, administered by the U.S. Department of Education (USEd). The next competition will be for the 2019-2020 cycle, pending funding availability.
