The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. Fulbright awards are designed to give recent and current master’s students, as well as Ph.D. students, opportunities for international experience, personal enrichment, and an open exchange of ideas with citizens of other nations. The Fulbright program provides over 1800 awards annually in over 155 countries. For detailed information please visit the Fulbright U.S. Student Program website at: http://us.fulbrightonline.
U.S. Citizens – Must have a bachelor’s degree. Open to master's and PhD students. Note that PhD students should be at or approaching candidacy and can apply up to the time of graduation (to use as a post-doc) but not after. The program also welcomes applications from recent graduates with a master's degree. This is an opportunity for alumni to turn knowledge gained through professional experience into exciting international research projects. This can be a great step toward PhD level study or for transitioning to a new career phase.
