Fulbright-University of Manchester Award 2017-18


One Fulbright-University of Manchester Scholarship Award will be offered to pursue a one-year Master’s degree programme (or the first year of a Master’s degree programme) in any discipline at the University of Manchester (for the 2017-2018 cycle)


APPLICATION WINDOW

CLOSED


DEADLINE

11 Oct 2016


PRIZES

The grantee will receive a full tuition fee waiver from the University of Manchester. In addition, the grantee will receive £12,700 which is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs (accommodation, travel, subsistence, etc) while in the UK.

Scholars will get the opportunity to have a transformative cultural and academic experience. Fulbright postgraduates in the UK are invited to participate in a wide range of events, and benefit from a variety of additional opportunities organised by the Fulbright Commission. An annual 3-day Orientation takes place in mid-September in London; a 4-day Fulbright Forum highlights a specific place or region of the UK each January; and a farewell ‘End-cap’ weekend is planned around each 4th of July weekend.

Postgraduates are also invited to attend annual conferences hosted by several European Fulbright Commissions, including: the Seminar on the EU and NATO held in Belgium and Luxembourg, and the annual Fulbright Workshop held in Berlin.

The benefits of the Fulbright network do not end upon departure from the UK. Over 300,000 Fulbright Awards have been given since the Programme’s inception, and alumni have the opportunity to stay engaged through their extensive alumni networks, including the UK Fulbright Alumni Network. Alumni also remain connected to the Programme through on-going social and cultural events, volunteer opportunities, and mentoring schemes, including their sister organisation The Sutton Trus and the Fulbright 1:1 Programme.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
