Students who would like to study as a graduate student at a US university for four to nine months in the academic year 2021-2022 can now apply for a study scholarship from the Fulbright Commission.
Scholarship holders are supported with up to $34,500 and admission to the Fulbright network. The application deadline is August 5, 2020.
Students and graduates of all subjects who would like to study at the Graduate School of a US university for one or two semesters. The selection criteria are, in addition to good academic performance, social commitment and the potential to contribute to transatlantic relations. Applicants will have a Bachelor's degree or a completed FH diploma by August 2021 at the latest. We would be particularly pleased to receive applications from candidates who, in addition to their academic achievements, are also distinguished by their social commitment and who, in the course of their studies, deal with topics related to digital change and thus make a contribution to the promotion of democracy.
The scholarship offers up to $34,500 in financial support for nine months of study at a graduate school in the USA, as well as advice and support from Fulbright Germany and our US partners and admission to the global Fulbright network. For shorter scholarships (at least four months) a pro-rata calculation will be made.
Application deadline is 05 August 2020.
In a first selection step the applications will be evaluated by independent experts. Applicants nominated by the reviewers will be invited for group interviews, which will take place in Berlin from early to mid November 2020. From the end of November onwards, we will inform the applicants by email about the outcome of the selection process. Please let us know if you are interested in participating in the group interviews in Berlin as a member of the selection committee.
