Scholarships

In addition to a full tuition fee waiver from the University of Glasgow the awardee will receive £10,000, which is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs (accommodation, travel, subsistence, etc) while in the UK. This will be paid in instalments directly to the grantee upon arrival in the UK. Limited sickness and accident benefit coverage (typically not needed with free access to the NHS) is also provided.

All grantees in the UK attend a 3-day orientation program on arrival in September, a 5-day Fulbright Forum in January and a farewell event, the Fulbright 'End-cap'. The Commission has arranged a number of memberships for grantees during their stay and will assign a British alumna/us as a mentor.

Value of Scholarship(s)

full tuition fee waiver + £10,000

Eligibility

Each year, one award is offered to a US citizen to pursue a one-year Master’s degree programme (or the first year of a longer Master’s or PhD programme) in any non-clinically based subject at the University of Glasgow. The successful candidate will be selected by the Fulbright Commission and the Institute of International Education (IIE).

Application Procedure

Minimum eligibility for this award category:

US citizen (resident anywhere but the UK)
Rigor in scholarly enquiry and academic or professional excellence
Strong reasons for wishing to pursue the proposed project in the UK
Interest in the peoples and cultures of the UK
Clear set of objectives for the Fulbright year
Commitment to the host community through volunteer and extra-curricular activity
Candidates need not be recent graduates, and financial need is not a factor in the selection process. The program seeks the widest possible variety of fields and career goals among applicants, including the arts and professional studies in addition to traditional academic disciplines. Preference will be given to those who do not have extensive experience in the UK.
In making these awards the Commission is looking not only for academic excellence but a focused application, a range of extracurricular and community activities, demonstrated ambassadorial skills, a desire to further the Fulbright Programme and a plan to work for the betterment of the home and host countries both during and after studies.
