Fulbright Foreign Student Program
Applications for the 2014-2016 Fulbright Foreign Student Program are being accepted now through April 30, 2013.
This prestigious scholarship program, launched by the U.S. Congress and the late U.S. senator William J. Fulbright in 1946, allows outstanding students worldwide to study at U.S. universities to further their academic and professional careers as well as promote international cultural understanding. Participation in the Fulbright Foreign Student program allows exceptional Iraqi students to experience life in the United States first-hand. Fulbright students also have the opportunity to share Iraq's rich culture with Americans and to serve as "student ambassadors," both in the classroom and in everyday life.
The Fulbright scholarship will fund up to two years of study at the Master’s degree level at a U.S. university starting in the Fall of 2014. All disciplines and academic fields of study are available under this program, with the exception of medicine and other clinical studies. The program provides funding for tuition, round-trip international travel, living stipends, and health insurance. Iraqis both men and women and from all parts of Iraq with an outstanding academic record are urged to apply.
