The Fulbright Graduate Degree Grants provide tuition coverage for a graduate degree program, as well as monthly living stipend, health benefits and round-trip airfare. Grants are available in eleven countries, including Australia, Italy, and the UK. The terms and requirements vary by country. Click here to find details on specifications for the participating countries.
The Fulbright has an excellent website that takes you through all the application steps. It includes checklists, application tips, and webinars. We strongly recommend you consult the website very carefully.
The final deadline for Fulbright applications is generally mid-October. Applications are submitted online using the Embark system, which opens for applications from April to mid-October. To begin an application in this time period, click here.
However, there are some important caveats to this final deadline.
This internal deadline is because the NYU Office of Global Awards needs time to convene a faculty committee to interview you and provide an evaluation of your application. This is a requirement, not an option, and we do it at the request of the Fulbright Program.
The interview will take approximately 30 minutes and will be scheduled once we receive your application materials. After these interviews are over, you will have a chance to revise and strengthen your application. We will send you detailed outline of this process when you submit in mid-September.
