The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is a non-degree program that enables graduate students, young professionals and artists from BiH to study, research or teach in the United States for approximately one year. The Student Fulbright Program is intended for independent library and/or field research toward a Master's or PhD degree.
Students will establish professional contacts in their field, enhance their scholarly work, and gain international experience and personal enrichment. Scholarships are open, merit-based and awarded competitively, and are subject to the availability of funds.
- BiH Citizenship
- Current enrollment in a Master's/ PhD Program
- English language proficiency (semi-finalists must take TOEFL test)
The deadline to submit applications for Academic Year 2016-2017 is May 15, 2015.
