Frequently asked questions

Transportation and arrival


  • Does the Gateway Program cost extra?

    The Gateway Program is a free benefit provided by Fulbright. Fulbright will pay for your lodging during the Gateway Program. Airport pickup service is provided for free by the University of Nevada and/or the hotel you are staying at. We will also shuttle participants to the airport on the last day of the program. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Participants will also receive a $200 travel stipend to help with costs of traveling from Reno, Nevada to your final program (university) destination.

  • How much money should I bring to the Gateway Orientation?

    The Fulbright Program will pay for your housing and meals during the three-day orientation in Reno. If you wish to do any personal shopping while in Reno, you will need to bring extra money. Hotel accomodations are usually placed in the middle of the downtown shopping/retail area.

    On the last day of the program all participants will receive a $200 travel stipend to help offset the cost for your transportation from Reno to your final destination/university.
