USC Campus Deadlines

Why does USC have campus deadlines that are earlier than the Fulbright National Deadline? Fulbright gives campuses the opportunity to evaluate and provide feedback for applicants before final submission. In order for our office to arrange meeting times with faculty committees, we need your application materials early.  The purpose of the evaluation and interview is to enhance your application.

July 14, 2017– Deadline to register your application through USC in the Fulbright Embark Online Application to be eligible to participate in Campus Committee Evaluation Interviews. ***To apply for Fulbright through USC you must either be a current student or recent alumni (up to three years after graduation).
