Affiliation

All candidates must affiliate with an Australian university. It is the candidate's responsibility to secure affiliation with an Australian university. Candidates must include affiliation letters with their Fulbright applications. 

Affiliation Fees/Tuition

Currently, Australian universities have agreed to waive tuition fees, where possible, for any U.S. Fulbright graduate student enrolling in a higher degree program. Please note that the waiving of tuition fees is at the discretion of the Australian institution and candidates are responsible for negotiating fee waivers directly with the corresponding institutions. Tuition fees are reviewed annually and are subject to change, and vary with each institution. In the event a waiver is not granted, candidates should be aware that the Fulbright grant does not cover the cost of tuition fees and is for travel and stipend only.

Ineligibility

  • Applicants currently residing in Australia (or those who will be living there during the 2018-2019 academic year) will not be considered.
  • Individuals with dual U.S.-Australian citizenship are not eligible.
