The United States Embassy in Dili, Timor-Leste is pleased to announce the opening of the Fulbright Foreign Student Scholarship Competition for the 2018-2019 Academic Year. The Fulbright Foreign Student Program brings citizens of other countries to the United States for Master’s degree at U.S. universities. The program has brought some of the world’s finest minds to the USA and offers program participants’ insight into U.S. society and values. Many foreign Fulbright grantees are early-career professionals who will return to take leadership positions in their home countries.
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State. The Fulbright-SERN Graduate Scholarship is an addition to the traditional Fulbright Graduate Scholarship Program in Timor-Leste with the support of the Bayu-Undan Joint Venture.
