  1. Hi, everyone. So, pretty much what the title says – I'm a current grad student in Taiwan on a Fulbright grant, and I have been absolutely miserable here basically since I arrived last August. The thought of leaving has always been on my mind, but with Taiwan's recent (and first) Covid lockdown starting, my depression has gotten way worse, and I don't know how seriously I should consider going back home, if at all. I have existing mental health concerns and can definitely tell when I'm going down a dark path. I've started therapy, but I don't think it'll be enough to truly help me get back on t
  2. I am a May 2020 college graduate and am finalizing my application for the 2021-22 Fulbright ETA in Greece. This is one of the more competitive grants with 13 fellows chosen. I am a dual citizen of the U.S. and Spain (not sure if that makes a difference). My qualifications are: Studied abroad in Madrid TEFL-certified and experienced teaching English Certified Medical Interpreter Taught myself to speak Greek through Google Translate even though fluency in Greek is not required. Was a club head for a literary translation magazine Right now I'm doing the final ed
  3. Hello everyone! The Fulbright 2020-21 application cycle for this year has been open since April and most applicants from last year's forum were already notified of their results. Congratulations to everyone on the forums that became a finalist last cycle! This can be a great place to ask questions, understand the process, get to know other Fulbright applicants, and endure the long notification waiting period 😵. A little bit about myself: I was a semifinalist in the 2018-19 cycle for Australia, and am re-applying this year! I wish you all the best in making it, and let the annual
  4. Hi guys! Today I had an interview for a PhD Fulbright scholarship. The interview was via Skype since I’m currently in the US, and everything was going quite well at the beginning. I was confident and very fluent and clear with all my responses, but in one moment, out of the blue, the internet connection started failing. The persons on the other side weren’t able to hear me and I couldn’t hear them either. I was so disappointed after the interview ‘cause I had prepared for this during almost one year. I got good grades and letters of recommendation, and good essays as well. Do you think I
  5. Hello to everyone! Since the last Grant cycle is coming to an end and the next cycle's application is now open, I figured it would be helpful to begin this next thread! Congratulations to the last cycle's grantees! Let's help each other out in the Fulbright process. This is a great place to ask questions, get familiar with the process, and chit chat to blow off some steam! Good luck to us all!
  6. Hi all- Very confused because people on Reddit are saying they received Spain ETA awards almost 2 weeks ago. I have been checking both of my emails nonstop and have not seen anything. Are emails going out at different times? Can anyone provide me with insight on this?
  7. Hi everyone, I am currently in a rut thinking about my options for the Fall (as I am sure many of you are). If anyone has any advice regarding this, I would really appreciate hearing it. I have been accepted to these schools and programs, with the following financial aid funding per year: - CMU Heinz, MSPPM (50%, ~$24k) - Chicago Harris, MPP ($20k) - Johns Hopkins SAIS, MA IDEV (no funding) - GWU Trachtenberg, MPA ($20k) -American SPA, MPA ($10k) I have also been accepted for a Taiwan Fulbright ETA for the next year, so I am leaning toward either deferring a
  8. Hi- I've been out of undergraduate for about 2 years now and working professionally in the business/IT field and I was accepted to do a Fulbright ETA (English Teaching Assistantship) in Europe which is something I was really interested in but wasn't sure if I'd get it given my background. However, now it's a reality and I'm faced with a dilemma. I'm not passionate with the career/field I'm in now as I'd like to get into doing analytics/data work so I applied to a few very competitive grad schools and only got into one of my back up schools for the upcoming 2019 year. I'm not crazy about
  9. Hi everyone! I am new to this site so excuse me if I'm not posting this in the right forum. I am international fulbright grantee, and I have been admitted to the following programs with the following financial aid: Columbia University, MA in American Studies, 50% tuition reduction Brown University, MA in Public Humanities, 40% tuition reduction The New School for Social Research, MA in Liberal Studies, 55% tuition reduction UChicago MAPH, $8,000 award NYU Gallatin MA in Individualized studies (waiting to hear about funding) NYU Steindhardt MA in
  10. Hello everyone, I am unapologetically paranoid about graduate school admissions. My undergraduate grades fluctuated quite a bit. I attended a community college for two years receiving a 3.4 GPA. I then transferred to a top 75 liberal arts college where I received a 3.2 GPA. My total undergraduate GPA works out to be a 3.3 which is not very good for more competitive programs in international development/public policy. I was hoping that I could get your feelings on my chances at admissions at Columbia SIPA and John's Hopkins SIAS. Other things to consider. I served in the Peace

  12. Greetings, all!I will be applying for a Fulbright ETA (English Teaching Assistant) grant for the 2018-2019 year. I have narrowed down my country choices to the Czech Republic, Netherlands, Bulgaria, and Italy, but I'm having a difficult time narrowing it further.I'm tempted to cross Italy off my list because it says that "Italian language proficiency is not a requirement, but is strongly recommended", which I take to mean, it basically -is- required since there are only 7 grants, and there will likely be many students applying that are indeed proficient or even fluent in Italian. I took one se
  13. I just found out I got a Fulbright for all three years of my phd film program in Scotland! I'm so proud of this opportunity, but I also just got a promotion at my current job in a really great museum. I now get to work with films in a museum. I think i want to work in non-academic sector,/museums, so this is also a great opportunity to keep moving with my career. I think going to school would be great, but i worry about giving up my great job. I can't defer the scholarship nor can I come back to my job. I also just moved in with my girlfriend. What should i do? Thanks!!
  14. Hey everybody New user, first time poster, just awarded ETA in Colombia for Aug 2017. Anyone out there applied for additional funding grants for a Fulbright? Or know of resources where I could look into it? I know the funds' *purpose* can't replicate that of the stipend, so this would be just for research, etc only, not living/miscellaneous, right? Anyone have any insight? Thanks, and good luck to everyone!
  15. Hey guys! I'm new to the forums here. I recently received a Fulbright grant to go teach in Russia. While I'm going to have to wait a while for my grant statement I'm trying to find more info about funding. Can anyone give a ballpark estimate regarding the ETA stipend in Russia? I heard it's based off of the cost of living, however, that varies greatly from region to region. Thanks!
  16. Hi guys. I haven't found a thread for this year's Foreign Fulbright Scholars, so I just created one so that we can exchange experiences and clarify our questions. I have applied to a couple of Biomedicine PhD Programmes and have just heard back from one yet. Anyone else in the field? Best of luck!

  18. Hello everyone, I am an undergraduate student in Turkey and I am going to apply to Political Science Ph.D programs for the 2017 cycle. My research areas are contemporary political theory, comparative neoliberalism(especially economic inequality), democratic theory, progressive era and new deal politics, pragmatist political theory(dewey, james). I have also been nominated as a Fulbright scholar. Which political theory programs should I apply to and how much does a fulbright scholarship improve chances of admission to top tier programs? My Toefl is 116(ibt), Gre is 165 Verbal, 164 Quant, 4
  19. I've been awarded a small Fulbright grant from the portuguese commission to do a Masters program in the US that I shall arrive at in 2 weeks. The remaining costs of the whole program have to be supported by me, coming from a middle/low-income family that can't even support me (or understand what grad school is). I've booked a trip and housing for the beginning, but I'm not sure I can invest in so much debt as to what is needed to finish the program. It is a very practical masters program though, to which just being exposed to is very valuable, even if only for one or two semesters and I d
  20. Hi, all! I got my BA in English at a school in the South, graduated with a 3.9 in 2015. I received a Fulbright ETAship and just returned from that to the US. In the 2014-15 application season, I applied for 8 PhDs and 4 MAs my senior year of college, and got one PhD offer, all four Masters. I then asked to defer (for Fulbright) and so was still accepted to those 4 Masters, plus another MA for the 2015-16 application season, 2016 academic year. My 2015 applications were not very impressive; I have since finished and defended my undergraduate honors thesis, presented 4 papers, spoken individuall
  21. Hi, I'm new here and I'm biting my nails like crazy. I was wondering if there was anyone else was applying to PhD or MAs through the IIE. I'm a Fulbright nominee and the IIE applies for us, and so we have no contact with the department. Whatsoever. So, every time I see one of the programs I applied to showing up I freak out. Has anyone had the experience or is experiencing the same, so that we can all fret together??
  22. I'm an out-of-field applicant and was very unsure of what to expect going into this process. I'm still in shock that I got into several great schools and have finally decided on attending Vanderbilt. However, I haven't formally accepted yet because I just found out that I won a Fulbright grant to teach English in Europe next year. All my professors assured me that if I won, I would be able to defer grad school for a year and do both. When I called Vanderbilt, this wasn't the case. So now I have to decide between going straight to school next year or going to Europe instead and reapplying next
  23. I keep frantically checking my e-mail everyday to see if I was accepted as a finalist for the Fulbright ETA to Germany, but it seems the waiting will continue.... I hope there are those who are in solidarity with me as we wait.
  24. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated! I have a very tough choice ahead of me. -Cambridge MPhil in International Relations and Politics. -Fulbright for Sciences Po Paris, with LSE the following year (dual degree). -Oxford MPhil in International Relations -Others: LSE MSc in IPE on its own (1 year), PSIA International Public Management on its own (Fulbright first year, second year much less expensive than if I did the LSE dual degree but less impressive/wouldn't open doors in London), UCL Masters in International Public Policy, SAIS Bologna/DC (offered no money)
  25. So here is the deal. Me and my husband were awarded a Fulbright scholarships to study in the US starting this fall. We are both architects, but my partner is applying to a PHD program and me to a M Arch. The thing is, he started learning English just a year and a half ago so, obviously, his grades on standardized exams (GRE TOEFL) are lower than mine, but his experience is way greater than mine (research, working abroad, teaching, studying abroad..). Anyways, we applied to 7 schools is hopes to get accepted to at least one school, and now have one option so far that has said yes to us bot
