National fellowships are fully funded, usually year-long programs that support independent exploration, research, English teaching, graduate study, and professional experiences in and outside of the U.S.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program funds one year of English language teaching, independent research, graduate study, or creative work in any discipline in one of ~140 program countries. Fulbrighters serve as cultural ambassadors for the U.S. Applicants must demonstrate motivation, cultural awareness, and a strong academic background in the chosen field. Open to U.S. citizens; graduating seniors and recent alumni.
The Thomas J. Watson Fellowship supports one year of purposeful, independent exploration in multiple countries outside the U.S. Applicants should show passion, imagination, independence, leadership, resourcefulness. Open to all citizenships; graduating seniors only. Each year Wesleyan may nominate four applicants.
