Go Abroad Again

Going Abroad (again) as an Active UNC Charlotte Student

If you've already studied abroad and want to go abroad as an active & enrolled UNC Charlotte student, your next step would be as follows:

Going Abroad After Graduation

If you're looking to go abroad after graduating from UNC Charlotte, unfortunately the OEA is unable to advise or assist you. However, we've compiled a list of resources that may help as you look for potential volunteer placements or jobs abroad:

GoinGlobal: A resource open to UNC Charlotte students only

Discover job and internship opportunities overseas and in the USA. GoinGlobal career and employment resources include more than 10,000 pages of constantly-updated content on topics such as: job search sources, work permit/visa regulations, résumé writing guidelines and examples, employment trends, salary ranges, networking groups, cultural/interviewing advice, webinars… and much more! To access the GoinGlobal database you must have a valid UNC Charlotte NinerNET username and password. (For recent graduates, your NinerNet credentials are active for 1 year after you graduate.)

Fulbright U.S. Student Program Scholarship

The Fulbright program provides grants for individually designed study or research projects following their Bachelor's Degree or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. 

Grant benefits for all Fulbright U.S. Student grants include:

  • round-trip transportation to the host country
  • funding to cover room, board, and incidental costs, based on the cost of living in the host country
  • Accident & Sickness Health Benefits

In some countries, grants may also include:

  • book and research allowances*
  • mid-term enrichment activities
  • full or partial tuition
  • language study programs
  • pre-departure and in-country orientations
  • *Grantees with projects that require extensive research support, in-country travel, study materials, or equipment should explore additional funding from other sources to supplement the Fulbright funding.

  • Eligibility
    • U.S. citizens (permanent residents are ineligible)
    • Have a conferred bachelor's degree before the start of the grant
    • In the creative and performing arts, four years of professional training and/or experience meets the basic eligibility requirement
    • Must be in Good health; required to submit a satisfactory Medical Certificate from a physician
    • Have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country
  • Resources
  • Deadline
    • See below

Interested applicants must meet with UNC Charlotte's Fulbright Program Advisor, Brad Sekulich, to discuss the application process and timeline prior to the campus application deadline. 

UNC Charlotte's campus deadline is August 15, 2018, 5:00pm Eastern.

The Fulbright national deadline is October 9, 2018, 5:00pm Eastern.

Students who do not submit an application by the UNC Charlotte campus deadline may still submit an application to Fulbright by the national deadline but they will not be interviewed by (and thus miss the guidance offered by) the campus review committee.
