A number of applicants will be invited for an interview in September 2020 with The Fulbright Selection Committee. The pre-selection for the interview is based on the application materials, in which your project statement, arrangements for affiliation with a U.S. host institution, argumentation of why the U.S. and letters of reference are very important.
During the interview you will be asked to tell us more about your plans in the U.S., your interest in furthering mutual understanding and building up a scientific network, and the extra-curricular activities that you plan to do. During the interview you will also have the opportunity to tell more about yourself, so that the Committee can get to know you.
Special preference will be given to candidates who propose a relevant project related to the U.S., and who also have a sincere interest in getting to know the U.S. culture and values; who have proven to be socially engaged in community services, volunteering activities and the like; and who are ready to meet new people and engage in new experiences.
Candidates will be notified of the results of the interviews in September 2020.
