Fulbright Program

The Fulbright Student Program is the U.S. governments' most prestigious scholarship program. It provides opportunities for U.S. students to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and teaching in elementary and secondary schools worldwide.

Fulbright applications are highly competitive, and students are encouraged to start preparing at least a year before the application deadline. 

Campus Deadline

The campus application deadline for the 2021 - 2022 academic year Fulbright Student Program is 3 p.m. on September 18, 2020.

Applicants will receive an e-mail notifying them of the date and time for their campus interviews, which is tentatively scheduled for the first week of October.

Please do not submit the online application till the Fulbright coordinator has reviewed your application with you after the interview.

Application Process

All candidates applying through a U.S. institution must submit the Fulbright application through the Embark online application system by the campus deadline; all supporting materials, as outlined in the Application Components section must also be included by the campus deadline date.

Once your application has been submitted for institutional review, the Fulbright Program Adviser will schedule a campus interview for you.

Following the interview and before the final deadline in October, you will have the opportunity to revise your application based on feedback provided by the Fulbright Program Adviser and the campus interview committee.

You must work with the Fulbright Program Adviser to ensure that your application is officially submitted and that all supporting documents are attached by the final deadline: October 9 (5:00 p.m., Eastern Time).
