Students who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs at U.S. colleges or universities are eligible to apply for funding to conduct research in combination with study abroad through Fulbright’s country specific program, regional programs (Near East, North Africa and South Asia; European Countries; Africa and Sub-Saharan; East Asia/Pacific Area; Western Hemisphere), or the Islamic Civilization Initiative. The Islamic Civilization Initiative is designed to enhance the knowledge and understanding of Islam and Islamic history and culture broadly defined. Grants will be awarded to competitive proposals for research and study in any country where there is an American students program and a significant Muslim population. Graduating seniors are encouraged to apply. Candidates at all degree levers will be considered. Language study as a supplement to research is encouraged. Students must apply through the Fulbright Program Advisers (FPA) on their campuses. Consult with your campus FPA about research topics, application competitiveness, and deadlines.
