Ulster University is proud to be a Fulbright Partner and warmly supports incoming American and outgoing Ulster Fulbright scholars. Approximately 20 scholarships are available to US graduate students for study in almost any subject in the UK. These awards aim to promote mutual understanding between the United States and the UK and cover tuition fees and 10 months' maintenance sufficient to cover housing, travel, food and other living expenses.
Candidates are expected to be leaders, or future leaders, in their field of study, whose project proposals reflect enduring concerns, demonstrate sound methodology, and avoid politicisation of scholarly inquiry. Candidates must be US citizens and must demonstrate the following:
- academic and/or professional excellence
- ambassadorial qualities
- commitment to the community, through volunteer and extra-curricular activity
- strong reasons for coming to the UK to undertake the proposed project
- a clear idea of what they hope to achieve during the year as a Fulbrighter.
Commission encourages professionals, academics and recent graduates to apply. Candidates without a BA or equivalent degree but with extensive years of professional study and/or experience in their chosen field may be considered. Candidates may apply to more than one university and formal acceptance need not be completed prior to applying for a Fulbright award. Funding is not available for:
- undergraduate study
- for applicants who already hold a PhD, or
- those who have begun a programme of study and seek funding for the second year.
