Announcing the new Post-doctoral opportunities through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program

Please share this information below regarding post-doctoral opportunities for recent Ph.D. graduates and graduating Ph.D. students through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.

Fulbright postdoctoral grantees gain critical research skills, build networks and add important international experience to their CVs.

We would appreciate it if you could please share this message with recent Ph.D. graduates and graduating students at the University of Iowa as well as encourage students to register and attend the Fulbright Grants for Postdoctoral and Early Career Candidates webinar on Wednesday, May 10, from 1pm to 2pm CST.

For the purposes of the Fulbright Scholar Program, an applicant is eligible for postdoctoral awards if they will finish all of the requirements for their Ph.D. program by February 1, 2018, or have received their Ph.D. in the last five years (unless otherwise stipulated by an award description). Below is a list of awards open only to early career/postdoctoral candidates, meaning that applicants will be evaluated alongside fellow recent graduates. This list is by no means complete. A list of additional opportunities is available in our Catalog of Awards.

For eligibility factors, detailed application guidelines and review criteria, please visit our website. Applicants may also wish to join My Fulbright, a resource center for applicants interested in the program. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and the current competition will close on August 1, 2017. Start an application today!

Our staff are happy to answer any questions regarding any of the opportunities listed above or the Fulbright Scholar Program in general. Please contact us with any questions.

We appreciate your assistance in promoting these unique awards!
