The U.S. Mis­sion in Iraq An­nounces the 2015 Ful­bright For­eign Stu­dent Pro­gram

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The U.S. Em­bassy is pleased to an­nounce that we are now ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the 2015 Ful­bright For­eign Stu­dent Pro­gram. This pres­ti­gious and com­pet­i­tive schol­ar­ship pro­gram, launched in 1946 by the U.S. Congress and the late U.S. Se­na­tor Wil­liam J. Ful­bright, al­lows out­stand­ing stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als world­wide to ob­tain Mas­ter’s de­grees at U.S. uni­ver­si­ties to fur­ther their ca­reers as well as to pro­mote in­ter­na­tional cul­tural un­der­stand­ing. The Ful­bright pro­gram is fully funded by the U.S. govern­ment and di­rectly sup­ports the U.S.-Iraq Strate­gic Frame­work Agree­ment by strength­en­ing the de­vel­op­ment of Iraq’s fu­ture lead­ers through ed­u­ca­tional ex­change.

The Ful­bright schol­ar­ship will fund up to two years of study at the Mas­ter’s de­gree level at a U.S. univer­sity start­ing in the fall of 2015. All dis­ci­plines and aca­demic fields of study are avail­able un­der this pro­gram, with the ex­cep­tion of medicine and other clin­i­cal stud­ies. To be el­i­gi­ble, ap­pli­cants from Iraq must a) pos­sess a bach­e­lor de­gree from an ac­cred­ited higher-ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion, b) demon­strate a mas­tery of English, and c) have a min­i­mum of two years of work ex­pe­ri­ence.
