The Fulbright Durham University Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the university.
Durham University is distinctive - a residential collegiate university with long traditions and modern values.
After the Dark Ages in Europe, the 7th century saw a flowering of thought and culture in the North East of England. Bede - poet, scientist, historian and the greatest European scholar of the 7th century - is buried in Durham, as is St Cuthbert, who established 'English' Christianity from its Celtic and Roman roots.
Durham University is the inheritor of a continuous line of learning and scholarship dating from Bede and Cuthbert to the present day.
Testimonial from Sasha Safanova, Durham Fulbright Scholar 2018-19:
- Full tuition waiver
- £13,450 living stipend
The living stipend is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs towards the first year in the UK.
In the UK, master's degrees are typically one-year programmes (full-time) and PhDs are three-year programmes (full-time).
