US Fulbright Scholarships – Across all career stages

The Australian-American Fulbright Commission offers Scholarships to Australian citizens across all career stages. Awardees take part in a bi-lateral academic and cultural exchange, pursuing research or study at a U.S. institution, experiencing life in the United States of America, and bringing back their knowledge and experience to share with their communities in Australia.

A Fulbright Award is more than a Scholarship – it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering “leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures… It is a modest program with an immodest aim–the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilized, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past.”

To qualify for a Fulbright scholarship through the Australian Fulbright program, you must be an Australian citizen (by birth or naturalisation)

For information on how to apply and for Scholar Stories, visit https://www.fulbright.com.au/scholarships/?loc=au and https://www.fulbright.com.au/applicants/australian-applicants/
