*** Application Cycle 2020 – 2021 Now Open***
The Public Affairs Section of the United States Embassy in Dar es Salaam is seeking qualified candidates for the Fulbright Foreign Student Program. Online applications are now available starting January 28, 2019. Deadline for submitting applications will be no later than April 5, 2019. Only successful candidates will be called for interviews scheduled for mid-April 2019.
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is the largest Fulbright program with Africa and provides financial assistance for a maximum of two years of study toward a graduate degree in a U.S. university or for participation in a non-degree research or nonacademic professional program. It is designed primarily to strengthen African universities through higher degree training for faculty members. Applications are also accepted from prospective candidates in public and private educational and cultural institutions, independent research institutes, and professional institutions.
Applications must be submitted using the Embark Visiting Scholar system, accessible at https://apply.iie.org/ffsp2020. The submission deadline for applications is April 5, 2019. For more information, please email [email protected].
The Fulbright Foreign Student Program is open to any qualified candidate but strongly encourages the inclusion of female candidates and prefers candidates who have not had extensive recent experience in the United States. Recent (within three years) recipients of Fulbright grants are not eligible to apply, and it should be emphasized that funding is for a maximum period of two years only. It is important to note that doctoral degree candidates will typically need to secure additional funding to complete their course of study and we now prioritize the selection of Fulbright Master’s candidates over Ph.D. candidates.
U.S. Embassy encourages candidates with disabilities to apply as special accommodations are available. The U.S. Government has provided previous grantees with a screen reader and note taking software, laptops, cell phones, canes, and/or wheelchairs to assist them while on their grant in the U.S.
