Friends of Fulbright Scholarship

Undergraduate Students Exchange Program

Goal

The program gives Argentine undergraduate students the chance to attend classes at an accredited U.S. university and share the experience of living and studying with students from the United States and other countries. Students will also participate in cultural immersion activities including community service, field trips and seminars. Participants will be sent to U.S. universities in different parts of the country (small or medium-sized institutions) and will receive credits from the U.S. institutions for their studies. The institution where participants will study will be determined after the selection interview. The Friends of Fulbright scholarship is designed for young students who cannot afford the costs of an exchange program.
