Fulbright Student Grant
The Fulbright Student Grant covers tuition fees and living expenses. In general, a grant for one academic year is about $20,000 for master's and doctoral students. The situation is different for research stays. Visiting Student Researchers (VSRs*) generally pay little or no tuition fees, depending on the host institution. If the host institution does not require tuition fees for VSRs, the award includes living expenses for the duration of the research stay. Travel and all other expenses must be paid by the grantee.
The longer the research stay, the higher the amount of the scholarship. The amount of the scholarship will therefore depend on the following factors:
- Does the host university charge tuition fees?
- What is the estimated monthly cost of living at the host university location?
- What is the duration of the research stay?
To determine the final amount of a VSR grant, the host university and the duration (number of months) of the planned research stay must be known.
*A visiting student researcher is typically a current doctoral student in their home country who wishes to advance their research for a short period of time (typically 6-10 months) at a U.S. institution.
