How to apply...
Institutions should request application materials from the Advanced Training and Research Team. Students should address requests for application forms to the office of the graduate dean or his or her representative at the graduate schools at which they are enrolled in a Ph.D. program. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-110.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The Advanced Training and Research Team will make initial selection and recommendation of fellowship recipients with the advice of a panel of specialists in foreign language and area studies and comments by U.S. embassies and binational commissions in the proposed countries of research. Selections are subject to review and final approval by the presidentially appointed J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. The grant covering successful graduate students is made to the applicant, i.e., institutions of higher education.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
