Graduating seniors and individuals who have recently received bachelor’s degrees should be able to demonstrate some preparation or internship work in their undergraduate career.
Students pursuing master's and doctoral degrees must demonstrate some ability for independent study or research together with knowledge of the country to which they are applying.
Writers, creative and performing artists, journalists, and those in law, business, and other professional fields may apply if they have less than 5 years of experience in the field in which they are applying.
Students interested in the Fulbright Program should begin thinking about applying early in their time at Marywood. Adequate research should be done about proposed host countries and institutions to determine the location in which the student would like to study. Additionally, students with research projects should begin developing the basis for these projects and forming contacts with University faculty to assist them. Students should review Marywood's checklist for Fulbright applicants to ensure they are ready to begin the application process. Students should also contact Fulbright Program Director Dr. Joseph Polizzi for deadlines and updates. This is not a short application, so do not leave it until the last minute.
