Fulbright scholarships: visit a US university or research institution

Are you a Dutch PhD candidate interested in following specialised courses or doing research at an American university for a period of 3 to 6 months? Or are you a researcher interested in teaching and doing research at an American university for at least 3 months? Then think about applying for a Fulbright scholarship. The deadline for applications for 2016-2017 is Tuesday 1 December 2015. Contact funding adviser Sarah Melker for more information.

The scholarship for PhD candidates is to be used for research or specific courses at an American university for a period of three to six months. The scholarship offers $1,000 per month, for a maximum of $6000. 
The scholarship for researchers who have already finished their PhD is meant to stimulate exchange. The scholarship is max. $13,000 for senior researchers (more than 6 years relevant experience in employment) and max $9000 for junior researchers (less than 6 years relevant experience). The minimum period of residence in the US should be three months.

Applications will be reviewed on the need to do research in the US (and not anywhere else); the quality of the research proposal; and on the innovative character of the research. The host needs to be an institution of high quality.

Furthermore, the applicant should:
– have Dutch nationality and no dual citizenship (Dutch/American);
– not already reside in the US or have stayed there the last few years;
– return to the Netherlands after the visit.

Fulbright fellows can’t request a visa for work or immigration to the US for two years after the visit. This does not rule out visits as a tourist or for conferences.

The deadline for applications for 2016-2017 is 1 December 2015.
