Fulbright Student Scholarship Program to study in the United States


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 2021. 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 students 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 up to two years,
  • books,
  • health insurance,
  • and stipend to cover lodging and living expenses.

Application process:

Interested students may log on to https://lb.usembassy.gov/fulbright2021/ to know more about the eligibility requirements and application instructions.

The deadline to submit the online application and required grade transcripts, recommendation letters, and TOEFL for the program is Friday May 15, 2020.
