Applications for postgraduate studies in the US now open

Established in 1946 to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries, the Fulbright Foreign Student Program currently operates in South Africa and more than 150 countries worldwide. The scholarships cover up to the full cost of tuition and living expenses in the US.

The applicants wishing to pursue a Master’s degree must have completed a four-year B-Tech degree or a three-year Bachelor’s degree with an Honours degree. Prospective Doctoral students must have successfully obtained a Master’s degree.

In 2018, 29 South African students and scholars received fully-funded Fulbright scholarships to complete postgraduate studies at American academic institutions and to conduct research in the United States. These individuals are currently pursuing studies in fields ranging from molecular biology, viticulture, economics, and audiology, to mechanical engineering, occupational therapy and philosophy at institutions including Ohio State University, University of Missouri, Rochester Institute of Technology, University of California, and the University of Pennsylvania.
