U.S. Citizens – 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.
Round-trip transportation, living costs for the academic year, based on living costs in the host country; supplemental health and accident insurance; and dependent support. Depending on the country, you may also receive modest funds for book and research allowances, tuition, and language or orientation courses.
Approximately one academic year; length and timing of awards varies by individual country and/or region.
The UMCP campus deadline is September 1, 2018. There is a lot to do in putting together a successful Fulbright proposal. Our successful applicants start by late spring/early summer.
