(Closed)The International Fulbright Science & Technology Award- Deadline: February 1, 2011

What is The International Fulbright Science & Technology Award?

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State sponsors the International Fulbright Science & Technology Award for Outstanding Foreign Students (Fulbright S&T) to provide exceptional foreign students with an opportunity to pursue Ph.D. study at top U.S. universities.

Fulbright S&T is designed to be the most prestigious international scholarship in science and technology and to demonstrate the United States’ commitment to welcoming top-notch future researchers and leaders to pursue serious scientific study and research at U.S. institutions.

Grantees receive three years of funding from ECA followed by support from their institution until the completion of Ph.D. programs.


Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree (comparable to a U.S. bachelor’s degree) on or before August 2012 and cannot reside in the U.S. at the time of application to the program. It is highly recommended that the applicant have received his/her bachelor’s degree in the same or a related field for which he/she plans to pursue Ph.D. study. Applicants must demonstrate English proficiency with a recent TOEFL score (or equivalent) of 580 or higher

Applicants to the S&T Program must plan to study in one of the following fields:

  • Aeronautics and Astronomics/Aeronautical Engineering
  • Agriculture (theoretical or research-based focus only)*
  • Astronomy / Planetary Sciences
  • Biology
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Sciences/Engineering
  • Energy
  • Engineering (electrical, chemical, civil, mechanical, ocean, and petroleum)
  • Environmental Science/Engineering
  • Geology / Earth and Atmospheric Sciences
  • Information Sciences / Engineering (engineering focus only; business-focused study is not eligible)
  • Materials Science/Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Neurosciences
  • Oceanography
  • Physics
  • Public Health (research or theoretical focus only)

* While agriculture tends to be a fairly applied field of study, those wishing to pursue theoretical and research-based study in such areas as entomology, plant biology, plant pathology, and soil science are eligible for this Award.
