The J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences is pleased to invite applications from superior undergraduate students of the Humanities and Classics. The scholarship is designed to support a year of study abroad with a monetary award of at least $10,000.
Applicants must be currently enrolled undergraduate students in Fulbright College at the University of Arkansas with at least sophomore standing at the time of application. Applicants should have already identified and made application for one or more approved study abroad programs in a desired country. The Office of Study Abroad & International Exchange provides assistance with this process.
The proposed program of study should also include a proposal for research on a topic related to the Classics or Humanities. These projects often formulate the scholarship recipients’ honors thesis after their return from study abroad.
Areas of Interest:
Successful applicants will have an interest (but not necessarily a major) in one of the following fields: literature, history (including theatre, art, and music history), jurisprudence, philosophy, archeology, comparative languages, and those aspects of the social sciences that employ philosophical or historical approaches.
The scholarship is designed to support a year of study abroad with a monetary award of at least $10,000.

- Keep advisor informed of whereabouts and academic progress, and to prepare such reports covering their experience while under the grant as may be requested;
- Submit an appropriate letter of thanks to the steward(s) of the J. William & Elizabeth Fulbright Scholarship for Study Abroad as specified by the Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences Dean’s Office.
If a recipient fails to maintain a satisfactory record, or demonstrates conduct considered prejudicial to the best interest of the University of Arkansas, the award may be withdrawn and payments terminated.
Additional expectations and requirements may apply. Recipients should refer to their award letters for specific instructions.
