Queen Mary University of London

 The Fulbright Queen Mary University of London Award covers three-to-nine months of funding for a research project at any relevant research active department.

Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK's leading research-focused higher education institutions, ranking seventh in the UK for quality of research (92% are internationally excellent or world-leading) in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021).We are one of 24 leading UK universities represented by the Russell Group, committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.  

With 32,000 students, 4,600 members of staff, and an annual turnover of £474m, Queen Mary is a truly global university with students, staff, and alumni from over 160 countries. We are ranked 110th in the world and 13th in the UK (The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021). Our home is in London, but with sites in Paris and Malta, and almost 5,000 students studying on our joint programmes with partners in China, our reach extends far beyond the UK capital. 

The number of months that can be funded will vary across departments and years. Applicants should confirm that funding is available for the required number of months with the host department before submitting a formal application. This award is not supported by Schools in the Faculties of Science and Engineering, however Schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Medicine and Dentistry welcome applications.
