Fulbright Application Process at Baylor

The Baylor Fulbright Application Process

The Baylor application process for undergraduate students begins in the spring of their junior year and they submit their applications in the fall of their senior year, though we will gladly work you whenever you contact us about the award, so please do reach out with your interest. We begin working with graduate students at any point in their program and alums whenever they contact us. Like with our undergraduate applicants, we start the application process for graduate students and alums in the spring and will happily work with you to begin the application process whenever you contact us. We have a team of experts, led by Baylor's Fulbright Program Advisors (FPAs) Dr. Andy Hogue and Dr. Daniel Benyousky, who are here to guide you through this process, from introductory information all the way to final submission of an application.

Initial Steps

1. If you plan to apply during the upcoming award cycle and have not been in contact with Dr. Benyousky, the first thing you will want to do is email him (daniel_benyousky@baylor.edu) to express your interest.

2. If you have not already, we would like you to watch these videos from the Fulbright website. The first video offers a general overview of the Fulbright US Student Program, the second considers the Study/Research award, and fourth talks about the English Teaching Assistant award (you can skip the third video for now). All three short videos offer helpful information about the Fulbright.

3. We also ask that you watch this video from a recent information session offering specific guidance on our Baylor application process.

If you would like to apply for the Fulbright for the upcoming cycle and have not let us know yet, please email Dr. Benyousky so that we may help you launch your application.
