THE FULBRIGHT STUDENT PROGRAM
This flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Government is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. With this goal as a starting point, the Foreign Student Program brings more than 1,800 foreign students from 144 countries to U.S. universities each year. Foreign students apply for Fulbright grants through the U.S. Embassy in their home countries. Fulbrighters are chosen for their leadership potential, with the opportunity to observe each others' political, economic and cultural institutions, exchange ideas, and embark on joint ventures of importance to the general welfare of the world's inhabitants.
The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by former Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. The Fulbright Program is administered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the United States Department of State.
In Montenegro, the Fulbright program is available for non-degree scholarships only. The competition for Montenegrin students is open until September 15, 2014.
This announcement is for the Fulbright student program only. Visit the Embassy Fulbright Scholar link for information about the Fulbright Scholar program for Montenegrin citizens.
