Postgraduate Student Awards
Applications for 2017-18 open 1 August 2016.
The Fulbright Awards Programme is the only organisation that offers scholarships for academic work in any subject, at any accredited US university. Approximately 20 postgraduate scholarships are offered each year to UK citizens as a contribution toward the first year of postgraduate or doctoral study, or for 'special student research' or 'visiting student research'. Candidates choose and apply to US university departments directly and independently.
We currently offer the following Postgraduate Awards:*
- Fulbright Postgraduate Student Awards (All Disciplines)
- Fulbright - Alistair Cooke Award in Journalism

*Full details of the 2017-18 Fulbright Awards will be available later this year.
Fulbright Awards are for varying amounts, intended as a contribution towards the first year of tuition fees and general maintenance costs whilst in the US. Grants are generally paid in instalments directly to the grantee, the first of which is typically given just prior to departure from the UK. Individual awards may have different arrangements. A number of memberships, sickness and accident benefit coverage, and J-1 visa sponsorship are also included. There is substantial pre-departure support, including a Finalists Workshop (March) and a 2-day Orientation Programme (July). Once on-the-ground in the US, further support is offered by the Institute of International Education (IIE).
