Fulbright Scholarships for 2017-18 – for UK citizens to study in the USA
Application Deadline:  6 November 2016

The Fulbright Commission is the only organisation that offers scholarships for academic work in any subject, at any accredited US university.  Each year, they give awards to aproximately 40 UK citizens, including 20-25 at postgraduate level.

More than funding, Fulbright awards offer scholars the opportunity to have a transformative cultural and academic experience and provide unparalleled support both during and after their Fulbright year.  In addition to the all-disciplines category, Fulbright offers subject-specific awards in partnership with prestigious US institutions in fields such as public affairs, journalism, finance and a range of STEM subjects.

Non-UK citizens are encouraged to use the Fulbright advisory service in the UK and attend USA Grad School Day, but to apply for Fulbright scholarships through the Commission or Embassy in their home country.
