Almost all science and technology fields are covered by this remarkable group of young people. We are open for collaboration and advice on any topic that advances the global good and our members engage with in their practice or show interest for. Click here to learn more about us.
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State sponsored the International Fulbright Science & Technology Award for Outstanding Foreign Students (Fulbright S&T) to provide exceptional foreign students with an opportunity to pursue Ph.D. study at top U.S. universities. The program was started in 2007 with its first cohort and will terminate on September 1st, 2015 when the last cohort from 2012 will officially end its sponsorship from the ECA.
Fulbright S&T was designed to be the most prestigious international scholarship in science and technology and to demonstrate the United States’ commitment to welcoming top-notch future researchers and leaders to pursue serious scientific study and research at U.S. institutions.
Grantees received three years of funding from ECA followed by support from their U.S.host institution until the completion of Ph.D. programs.
