Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Senior
Graduate Students (Masters)

The flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Government, the Fulbright Program, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. With this goal as a starting point, the Fulbright Program has provided approximately 308,000 participants — chosen for their academic and leadership potential — with the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Currently, the Fulbright Program operates in over 155 countries worldwide.

It is the policy of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board that grants be awarded to the best qualified students regardless of degree level. Preference, however, will be given to candidates who have recently received a baccalaureate degree. These candidates are not restricted as to field of study, nor will they be required to have formulated long-term specific educational or career goals beyond those necessary for a successful experience abroad. Master’s level students, young professionals, and doctoral candidates are expected to have fully-developed programs of study or research that can be completed during the grant period.

General Requirements:

Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application.

Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent before the beginning date of the grant.

Applicants may not hold a doctoral degree at the time of application.

Applicants may hold a J.D. degree at the time of application.

Applicants should have sufficient proficiency in the written and spoken language of the host country to communicate with the people and to carry out the proposed study/research. Such proficiency is especially important for students wishing to undertake projects in the social sciences and the humanities.

Applicants must be in good health. Grantees will be required to submit a satisfactory Certificate of Health from a physician.
