The Fulbright Program’s application process is lengthy and rigorous, and prospective applicants are encouraged to consider carefully their intentions, goals, future plans and prospective projects before applying for a Fulbright grant. The competition for Fulbright Program grants is merit-based. Candidates are selected based on a variety of factors, that may include (but are not limited to):

  • academic qualifications,
  • project feasibility,
  • personal leadership ability,
  • available grant funds.

Fulbright operates on a yearly application cycle, which generally (but not in all cases) opens approximately 15 months before the anticipated start of the grant with a deadline approximately 11 or 12 months before the grant’s start date.

Because a variety of cooperating agenciesbinational Commissions and U.S. Embassiesadminister the Fulbright Program in the participating countries, this site neither provides nor accepts applications directly.
