The Fulbright Student Scholarship Program is back again to provide students with an
opportunity to receive a scholarship that covers a maximum of two graduate academic years
of study in the United States beginning in August 2019. The Fulbright Program is sponsored
by the U.S. Department of State through the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.
The program was established in honor of former U.S. Senator J. William Fulbright and
demonstrates the United States’ commitment to welcoming outstanding international students
to pursue graduate study at U.S. universities.
This is a very important opportunity for the Lebanese students and long term Palestinian
residents in Lebanon to pursue their graduate studies through a U.S. Government-funded
grant that includes roundtrip airfare between Lebanon and the United States, university
tuition for two years, books, health insurance, and stipend to cover lodging and living
The deadline to submit the online application and required transcripts, recommendation
letters, and TOEFL for the program is Tuesday May 15, 2018.
