Postgraduate Study in the USA: Scholarships, Events, and Advice

Are you interested in postgraduate study in the USA in 2015-16 or beyond?

Read on for ways the US-UK Fulbright Commission can help, through our scholarship programme, advisory service, and upcoming webinar on postgraduate study.

Fulbright Scholarships for 2015-16 – For UK Citizens to Study in the USA
Application Deadline: 31 October 2014

The Fulbright Commission is the only organisation that offers scholarships for academic work in any subject, at any accredited US university. Each year, we give awards to approximately 40 UK citizens, including approximately 25 at the postgraduate-level. More than funding, our 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, we also offer subject-specific awards in partnership with prestigious UK and US institutions in fields such as public affairs, journalism, law, finance and information science.

(Non-UK citizens are encouraged to use our advisory service in the UK, but to apply for Fulbright scholarships through the Commission or Embassy in their home country.)
