Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarships are available to Australian
citizens to engage in 8 - 12 months of research relevant to an
Australian PhD; or undertake an approved course of study in an
American higher degree or its equivalent. These scholarships are
aimed at current PhD students, honours students, or honours
graduates who are considering postgraduate study in the U.S.
The Commission offers up to fifteen (15) Fulbright Postgraduate
Scholarships annually. There are up to eight general scholarships
open to all fields of study. The top ranked applicant nationally
receives the distinguished Fulbright Australian Alumni (WG Walker)
Scholarship. This scholarship is supported by a fund established
through donations by Australian Fulbright Alumni.
Fulbright Sponsored and Endowed Scholarships are either
sponsored by industry or government or endowed through donations
from business, individuals, governments and/or universities and are
offered in specific fields of study.
Applicants are encouraged to consider Fulbright sponsored and
endowed Scholarships as these scholarships offer the opportunity to
develop wider networks. Applicants who apply for a Fulbright
sponsored and endowed scholarship are also automatically considered
for a Fulbright General Scholarship.
Current Australian Postgraduate Scholarship holders are
encouraged to apply. Government guidelines related to Australian
Postgraduate Scholarships changed in 2005 to encourage
international research experiences related to Australian
postgraduate studies through scholarships, such as Fulbright.
