Fulbright Awards for UK Citizens

Exchanges to the USA 

The US-UK Fulbright Commission provides generous grants to UK citizens for study, research and lecturing in the USA, in any subject and at any accredited higher education institution.

Applications for 2017-18 are now closed. Applications for 2018-19 will open in August 2017.

*Please note that the "visiting student researcher" option applies to applicants who will pursue research projects at a degree granting accredited education institution while currently enrolled in an UK/European Master’s / Doctorate programme. Applicants will be required to engage in an independent full-time research project under the supervision of a research advisor at their U.S. host institution.

Eligibility: In order to apply for a Fulbright award you must be a UK citizen, resident anywhere except the United States. Non-UK citizens are required to apply in their country of citizenship, even if they are resident in the UK. Each award has additional specific eligibility criteria. Please review the Selection Criteria tab on each award's page for more information.
