Fulbright Awards offer financial support for non-degree study/research in the U.S. However, Fulbright is much more than a scholarship – we offer scholars the opportunity to have a transformative cultural and academic experience and provide unrivaled support both during and after their Fulbright year. While a Fulbright Award is one semester in length, the benefits do not end there. Receiving a Fulbright Award opens many doors and provides unparalleled global networking opportunities.

The third part is composed of why you want to go to graduate school, what you would like to study (research), and ideally, with whom you would like to study.
The account of your qualifications for undertaking the proposed study program should go beyond the data given on your cv. It might include, for example, evidence of any research skills or employment training relevant to your anticipated graduate studies. Advanced language skills reinforce credentials for foreign study. Governmental internships, tutoring, editorial experience, emergency-room volunteerism, “shadowing” professionals, publishing and writing, travel, and similar activities may have distinctively formed you to pursue your chosen educational and professional paths. Make the most of these correspondences.
Defining both the individual significance of your proposed work and its potential contribution to human well-being is as important for you as for the committees screening your application, since that significance is likely to become clearer to you as you contemplate the question. Contextualize your project by framing it relative to current concerns within the discipline: that is, how does your planned study or research extend or expand or enrich the field? How might it change understanding in the field? How will it address current limitations or repair current deficiencies or open new doors in the field? How does it reach beyond the field to affect the culture at large? In other words: (1) why is it important to do what you propose to do? (2) why is it important that you do it?
