Opportunities to Consider • US-UK Fulbright Awards Programme

The US-UK Fulbright Awards Programme

The US-UK Fulbright Awards Programme offers opportunities for you to study, lecture, or pursue research in any academic field.

For UK citizens, the US-UK Fulbright Commission offers a variety of grants and places on special programmes to the US. Scholars are selected through a rigorous application and interview process and receive a high level of support ranging from visa processing and health insurance to a comprehensive pre-departure Orientation and re-entry session.

The Commission is also the first point of contact for US citizens coming to the UK on a Fulbright exchange organising programmes and support throughout the year including an arrival orientation in September and an annual Fulbright Forum on current political, social and cultural issues.

Fulbright also offers a variety of Summer Institutes for high school students and undergraduates. These summer programmes are extremely varied and provide opportunities for students to experience academic life across the pond.


With just a few weeks to go until the 2013-2014 Fulbright student award deadline of 17 October, we’d like to take this opportunity to highlight a selection of awards available at UK universities – including some new opportunities.

There are three main categories of postgraduate awards to the UK:

1) Applicants may choose to apply in the all-disciplines category which is open to study any discipline at any institution.

2) Applicants may prefer to select a university-specific (partnership) award for study at a specific institution, such as:

Fulbright-University of Essex Award

Fulbright-University of Leicester Award

NEW! Fulbright-University of Nottingham Award

NEW! Fulbright-University of Newcastle Award

In general, scholarship stipends for 2013-2014 are £13,500 within London, and £12,000 outside of London – partnership awards also include tuition fees. Applicants must be US citizens and should review the eligibility, selection criteria and FAQs online. Applications are made online through the Institute of International Education.
