Important Information about Coronavirus / COVID-19

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and IREX continue to closely monitor the progression of COVID-19 (also known as the novel Coronavirus) in the United States and around the world. We are working with partner governments, Fulbright Commissions, U.S. Embassies, cooperating agencies, and U.S. and foreign host institutions to evaluate local conditions to guide the re-opening of Fulbright exchange programs.

Applications for some Fulbright programs for U.S. and international teachers are open for the 2021-2022 academic year, but individual countries or exchanges may have ongoing extenuating circumstances. Sign up to follow us on #Fulbrightteach. International teachers who have applied to Fulbright programs should check on their application or program status with their local U.S. Embassy or Fulbright Commission.

Please continue to check this website regularly for updates regarding specific programs.
