The Fulbright Masters and PhD Program are open for applications. The program helps funds graduate study in the United States of America for a Master’s or PhD program. It is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and this fund covers tuition, required textbooks, airfare, a living stipend, and health insurance. The Fulbright body also helps with the US visa procedure.
The application deadline is 13th May 2020.
Candidates who have a four-year Bachelor’s degree or a Bachelors and Master’s combination that totals up to 16 years of formal education from an accredited university are eligible to apply. The applications are submitted directly to the USEFP and do not have to go through the HEC, but an HEC attested degree helps further in the process.
Recent graduates can apply except for MBA and Public Policy Administration applicants that require 2 years of work experience before submitting their application.
The candidates are required to undertake and submit scores of Graduate Record Examination (GRE General) which is $205 and in some cases citing a financial inability to tolerate the expense of the test, USEFP will reimburse it. In order to reimburse your GRE fee, it is necessary that you take your examination as soon as possible as there are only a number of reimbursements available. The required minimum GRE score is 138 in verbal and 136 in the quantitative sections. You are also required to submit three reference letters and fill out the application form provided at the USEFP website.
The application review and interview process continue till September and the final result is announced in October. For further information about the Fulbright scholarship program click here and to get information about GRE click here.
