Fulbright Scholarship
For seniors or Recent Graduates Interested in Overseas Graduate Study in Any Discipline

In September 1945, the freshman senator from Arkansas, J. William Fulbright, introduced a bill in the U.S. Congress that called for the use of proceeds from the sales of surplus war property to fund the “promotion of international good will through the exchange of students in the fields of education, culture and science.” One year later, President Harry S. Truman signed the Fulbright Act into law. Today, Fulbright is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world, supported for more than half a century by the American people through an annual appropriation from the U.S. Congress and by the people of partner nations. The program—working with universities, schools, binational Fulbright commissions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector—actively seeks out individuals of achievement and potential who represent the full diversity of their respective societies and selects nominees through open, merit-based competitions.

Eligibility:

  • Have U.S. citizenship
  • Have or will receive a bachelor’s degree (normally within the last five years, prior to graduate study)
  • Demonstrate evidence of leadership ability

Award Amount:  Award for tuition and living expenses in various countries overseas

The creation of this program pays tribute to the leadership, courage, and vision of Senator Goldwater and establishes in his name an endowed recognition program to foster and encourage excellence in science and mathematics.

The purpose of the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, as stated in the enabling legislation, is to alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. A more realistic statement of the purpose, in today's terms, is to provide a continuing source of highly qualified individuals to those fields of academic study and research.

Sophomore Scholars can expect to receive a maximum of two years (4 semesters) of support. Students in two-year colleges who plan to transfer to a baccalaureate program at another institution may be nominated. "Junior" is defined as a student who has one more year (2 semesters) of full-time undergraduate study beginning September 2016. Junior Scholars can expect to receive a maximum of one year (2 semesters) of support.
