Postgraduate Awards typically offer a contribution towards tuition fees and living costs for one academic year. Scholar Awards typically provide a contribution towards any institutional fees, travel to/from the US, accommodation and general maintenance costs while in the USA. Successful grantees also receive a number of memberships, sickness and accident benefit coverage and visa sponsorship. There is substantial pre-departure support, including a Finalists’ Workshop (March) and a 2-day Orientation Programme (July). Once on-the-ground in the US, further support is offered by the Institute for International Education (IIE) and the Council for the International Exchange of Scholars (CIES), including additional travel grant opportunities for scholars to accept guest lecturing invitations at other US institutions. After the grant period is over Fulbrighters have access to our vast US-UK alumni network and are given the opportunity to attend a range of social and cultural events in the UK.
