AMIDEAST Fulbright Foreign Student Program

 

Application Deadline: May 30th 2018

You are invited to apply for a Fulbright Graduate Scholarship sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by AMIDEAST for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The scholarship is a merit-based grant that provides up to two-years of funding for graduate-level study at a U.S. university.  For over four decades AMIDEAST has been placing students from across the MENA region into universities throughout the United States. It has been integral to the success of the Fulbright Program, serving as a convener of academic and cultural exchange and dialogue. AMIDEAST continues today to support countless Fulbrighters to experience the opportunity of exchange and successfully complete their grants in the United States

 

The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB) regulations prohibit medical degrees, and this has been interpreted as degrees for medical doctors, dentists, nursing, and specializations in the medical and dental fields. Per the Fulbright regulations, doctors and nurses can pursue academic degrees, such as a Masters of Public Health, and nurses can pursue degrees in Nursing Administration or Nursing Education.

This is not a program exclusive for students. This program is for students who are about to graduate, recent graduates and professionals from diverse social, economic, academic and professional backgrounds. A competitive applicant should have an excellent academic record, strong English language skills, and the commitment to return to Tunisia upon completion of the program. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously studied in the United States.

All recipients of a Fulbright scholarship must return to their home country for at least two years upon completion or termination of the scholarship. They will be ineligible for an U.S.-immigrant visa until the two-year home residency requirement has been fulfilled.
