Fulbright Grants for Study-Research for Graduating Seniors
Competition Type
Global/National - Yale Endorsement

Description:

You should complete this application if you wish to opt in to the Yale College campus review process for the Fulbright Study / Research Grants.

Study / Research awards differ from the English Teaching Assistantships, which are a separate entry in this database.  Applications may be made for one country only, and only for one type of grant.

NOTE: The deadlines shown above (and detailed below) pertain to rising or current Yale College seniors who wish to participate in Yale College's campus review process. This process pairs Yale College seniors with Yale faculty in order for the applicant to receive feedback on their Fulbright application materials prior to submitting those materials by the national deadline.  Faculty members also provide a Campus Committee Evaluation form (CCE form) to accompany the application.

While there are several advantages to participating in Yale's campus review process, including feedback from faculty evaluators, Yale College seniors may elect instead to apply “at large” by the national deadline. Yale College Alumni may not participate in the campus review process and should apply "At Large" to Fulbright by the national deadline.

Complete information regarding the Fulbright Program is found at us.fulbrightonline.org.  Yale College's Fulbright campus review process is administered through the Center for International and Professional Experience's Fellowship Programs: fellowships@yale.edu.





Application Information:

To opt in to the Yale College campus review process, applicants must complete and submit the following steps by the posted deadlines:

Step 1: Monday, 28th August, 2017, 1pm: Complete and submit registration, via this online application, in the Student Grants Database.

Note: By this date, applicants should have:

- Decided upon a country and a project.

- Contacted potential references and language evaluators.

Step 2: Wednesday, 6th September, 2017, 1pm: Complete and submit Fulbright application via Fulbright's Embark system.

    Note:

    - The application form is found under the "Applicants" tab on the Fulbright website.

    - Applicants must click "Submit" in the Embark system in order for Yale to have access to the application materials for the campus review process. Once the application is submitted, applicants cannot edit their materials. To submit the Fulbright application in Embark, you must request the required references however, letters of recommendation may be uploaded after your submission. Please approach your referees with humility and ask that their letters be uploaded by October 2

    - Following the campus review process, on or before September 25, applications in the Embark system will be released for final editing and revision, based on the committee's feedback.

            - Fellowships will send an updated Yale transcript which includes fall classes to the applicant.      



    Step 3: Monday, 2nd October, 2017, midnight: Complete and resubmit Fulbright application via Fulbright's Embark system.

    Note:

    - This is the final submission deadline for students who have participated in the Yale College campus review process.

    - Applicants must meet this deadline in order for Yale to be able to access the application and upload the accompanying CCE form.



    Special Eligibility Requirements:

    • Eligible are U.S. citizens who will hold at least a bachelor's degree or its equivalent prior to undertaking the grant.
    • In most cases, candidates must be proficient in the language of the proposed host country.





    Restrictions to Use of Award:

    Selection is based on the academic and/or professional record of the applicant, the validity and feasibility of the proposed study project, the applicant’s language preparation, and personal qualifications. Some country competitions give preference to candidates who have not studied or resided in the proposed host country, but such experience is not disqualifying per se.

    Most grants are awarded for one academic year. Individual countries may place particular restrictions on Fulbright Grants: applicants should always read the appropriate country summary carefully.
