Applications For Fulbright Scholarships Invited

Applications For Fulbright Scholarships Invited

Fulbright New Zealand invites applications for the US government's most prestigious and valuable education scholarships - the International Fulbright Science & Technology Awards. Valued at over NZ$350,000 each, the awards are for promising graduate students to undertake fully funded PhD study at top American universities in fields of science, technology or engineering.

Approximately 40 awards are offered each year to graduate students from around the world who demonstrate unique aptitude and innovation in scientific fields, leadership potential and the ability to be a cultural ambassador for their country. Candidates are nominated by their home country's Fulbright commission and selected by rigorous international competition.

Fulbright New Zealand was successful in nominating three candidates in the competition's first two rounds - Irene Ballagh from Dunedin in 2006 and Alana Alexander from Auckland and Wynton Moore from Dunedin last year - and anticipates fielding more world class applications for this year's awards.

The closing date for applications to Fulbright New Zealand is 1 May 2008
