Pre-Departure Orientations

2018-2019 Pre-Departure Orientation Schedule

All candidates accepting awards for the following programs are required to attend a pre-departure orientation. If your country is not listed, there is no pre-departure orientation in Washington, D.C. and the Fulbright Commission in your host country will be providing more details.

Attendance at Pre-Departure Orientations is mandatory. Exemptions will only be considered for extenuating circumstances by the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State. Information on filing an exemption will be made available to grantees invited to the Pre-Departure Orientations in early April.
