Fulbright Scholarship Program

The Fulbright Scholarship Program gives Dutch students, PhD students and researchers an opportunity to study, carry out research or teach in the United States.

More than 150 countries participate in this worldwide programme, whose aim is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The programme was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by US Senator J. William Fulbright and is administered by the Fulbright Center in Amsterdam.

The Royal Academy participates in the scholarship selection procedure in the 'scholars' category (professors and university lecturers).

What do the scholarships cover?

Fulbright scholarships for students cover enrolment in a graduate programme or in the first year of a complete PhD programme at an American university.
Dutch PhD students can apply for scholarships to cover a three to six-month stay in the USA within the context of their doctoral research.
Fulbright scholarships for scholars are meant to cover teaching, whether or not combined with research.



Who are scholarships for?

Students, PhD students and researchers.
