Why Fulbright?

Texas State University is one of the most Fulbright supportive institutions in the United States. University policies encourage and facilitate part-time faculty, administrators, and full-time faculty should they be awarded a Fulbright grant to work abroad. Outside of a Fulbright salary and stipend, all awardees receive at least 50 percent of their salary from Texas State without requiring the use of developmental leave eligibility. Through the Fulbright Program, spouses/partners, children, and the children’s schooling can be covered expenses. If you are curious about Fulbright, interested in teaching and/or researching abroad, or considering taking your family on a cultural immersion experience, then contact Daris Hale. Fulbright could be the program for you.
