Apply here.

Fulbright Fellowship for the Creative and Performing Arts - Fulbright Program has been sending students, academics and professionals across the world to conduct research, study, teach and act as ambassadors to the US since 1945. A rigorous process of securing recommendations, outlining a proposal and finding a host sponsor, it’s best to get started on this application early. But with approximately 8,000 grants annually awarded, it’s worth the time to see if you can be one of the artists who embark on an international adventure while doing some good.
