The German-American Fulbright Program implements Senator J. William Fulbright’s visionary concept: The promotion of mutual understanding between our two countries through academic and bicultural exchange. The defining characteristic of the program is student exchange. The core program is complemented by academic year programs for professors, teachers, teaching assistants, and journalists; summer internship programs for students; and seminars for experts in university administration and German and American Studies.
Students can apply for programs including study and research at a German university, teaching assistantships at a German high school, and a summer session at Humboldt-Universität.
Applicants should consult the Fulbright Program Advisor at their institution. See the University Honors College website for further information.
The following awards have University of Pittsburgh campus-specific deadlines that typically range from two to four months before the foundation deadline. Note that these campus deadlines are not always listed on the foundation’s official website. It is mandatory that students meet the campus deadline and participate in the campus process to compete for these awards. Please contact the UHC National Scholarship Program Manager if you plan on applying for one of these awards.

Opportunities for undergraduate students are available during the academic year and summer in a variety of contexts: abroad, working in a laboratory (both at the University of Pittsburgh and at another institution), or analyzing texts. Research projects ranging from the applied sciences to the fine arts can find a place through the Honors College.
The UHC also advises undergraduates, seniors and alumni who are interested in pursuing national and international awards.
