Fulbright Grant Information Guide

THE REVIEW PROCESS

At the end of October, your application is submitted to IIE in New York. In November and December, IIE's National Screening Committee, consisting of specialists in various fields and area studies, meets to review all applications, and recommends candidates for further consideration. By the end of January, you will know whether your application has been recommended for further consideration. In February, the applications of recommended candidates are transmitted to the supervising agencies abroad for further review, particularly as to placement at foreign universities.

Final selection for Fulbright candidates is made by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, taking into account the recommendations of the National Screening Committee and the approval of the supervising agencies abroad. Depending on the country, recommended candidates should receive a final decision on their applications as early as April and as late as July.
