4 Fulbright Study/Research Grants (Open Awards)

Candidates may pursue independent post-BA-level research, or undertake a graduate degree program with affiliation at any accredited academic institution. These awards are tenable at any UK institution in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. These ‘open’ awards are the Commission’s most competitive awards and prospective applicants should consider carefully all award categories before choosing to which to apply. These are also referred to as ‘All-Discipline’ awards. When completing your Embark Online Application, these awards are not categorized as a “Special Opportunity” and you do not need to select anything from the drop-down menu.

Number of applications received for 2013-2014:  286


Grant period:

One academic year unless otherwise indicated. All grantees in the UK attend a 3-day orientation program on arrival in September, a 4-day Fulbright Forum in January and a farewell event, the Fulbright ‘End-cap’ weekend in June/July.


Candidate profile :

The Commission is seeking applicants who demonstrate:

1. Rigor in scholarly enquiry and academic or professional excellence;
2. Strong reasons for wishing to pursue the proposed project in the UK and at a particular institution;
3. A desire to gain a better understanding of the peoples and cultures of their host country;
4. Commitment to the community through volunteer and extra-curricular activity;
5. Flexibility and dynamism necessary for active involvement in the host country.

The Commission particularly invites more applicants from media and the creative arts and encourages all applicants to review its Current Fulbrighters and Case Studies on its website at http://www.fulbright.org.uk.


Ineligibility:

Awards will NOT be granted:

  1. For undergraduate study;
  2. To those already resident in the UK;
  3. To those who hold a Ph.D. at the time the grant is to begin;
  4. To proposals to complete any part of a medical degree, including internships or residencies;
  5. To those with extensive previous experience in the UK.


Choosing a host institution :

Applicants are responsible for arranging their own affiliations. Proof of acceptance is not required before or during the application process, but awards are made conditional upon acceptance by the chosen institution before arrival. Before you begin your application, it is worth taking time to research the best possible place for you to pursue your chosen course of study, taking into consideration the faculty, achievements, publications and research of the relevant department in a number of institutions, as well as their locations. Applicants should start by looking at the Fulbright partnership awards and the fee-waiver institutions described below, all of which the Commission has identified as being centres of excellence in the UK.

Additionally, the http://www.educationuk.org website will give a general overview of what is available.

Please note: We are aware that applicants intending to undertake a graduate degree program may not be able to provide an affiliation letter/ acceptance letter with their application. However, the applicant should provide a letter of affiliation with their application unless the prospective host institution has advised them that they do not issue letters of acceptance/ affiliation letters in advance of the Fulbright application deadline. If the applicant is not able to procure a letter of affiliation on these grounds, they should mention in their Statement of Grant Purpose that they have already applied to their host institution and are awaiting acceptance. Proof of Acceptance (letter of affiliation) is not required before or during the application process for the UK, but awards are made conditional upon acceptance by the chosen institution before applicants can begin their grant. Guidance on the format of these letters can be viewed on the Application Components and Application Tips section of our website.


Dependents:

The Commission does not provide any additional funding for dependents or assist with accommodation. Candidates must ensure that they have sufficient funds to support accompanying family members during their stay. Proof of such funding will be required at least 4 months before the intended arrival date as part of the visa application process.


Visas:

Candidates in degree-seeking programs will normally be sponsored by their host institutions under the Tier 4 student visa category. Those undertaking non-degree-seeking projects will be directly sponsored by the Commission under Tier 5 (government authorized exchanges). Grantees are ultimately responsible for obtaining the necessary visas for their travel.


Special considerations:

The Commission will contact short-listed applicants by email to arrange brief and relatively informal telephone interviews (typically in early February), at which stage applicants will need to confirm which university they wish to attend.


Benefits:

Benefits will vary, depending on the award which the grantee receives.

Candidates for the partnership awards or those undertaking projects at fee-waiver institutions will pay no tuition fees and will be given a stipend from the Fulbright Commission for international travel and living costs. Stipends will be £12,000 for locations outside of Greater London, or £13,500 within London.

Candidates affiliated with non-partnership and non-fee-waiver institutions will be required to pay tuition fees to their host institutions and will be given a grant which may be used towards these fees and/or living and travel expenses. All grants are paid in installments directly to the grantee, the first of which is typically given upon arrival in the UK.

Candidates awarded Fulbright partnership awards will receive any additional benefits described in the individual award listing.


Fee-Waiver Institutions:

Please note the following fee-waiver institutions and bear in mind when considering your affiliation:
University of Bangor, Cranfield University, University of Dundee, Glasgow School of Art, Goldsmiths College, University of London, University of Huddersfield, Keele University, Regent’s College, University of Stirling, Swansea University.
