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.
Dependents (spouse and/or children under 18) are eligible on the required visa for entry into Australia.
