Sponsored by the US Department of State, the Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide. Grants are valued at between $40,000 and $60,000.
Boren Scholarships offer unique opportunities for U.S. undergraduates to study abroad in world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America & the Caribbean, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
Boren Fellowships enable U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency. The Boren Fellowship supports students studying languages, cultures, and world regions other than Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Each year, YouthActionNet selects 20 young social entrepreneurs to participate in its Global Fellowship Program. These accomplished young leaders are distinguished by their records for success in achieving positive change in their communities, by their innovative approaches, and by their ability to mobilize their peers and community members in support of their social change visions. Awards are for $500 and more.
