Fulbright Scholarships

Fulbright Scholarships and Grants for Czech Citizens

Fulbright Program is open to all fields be it Liberal Arts or Hard Sciences (except for MBA, LLM and Clinical Medicine). The Fulbright awards are intended for Czech students, scholars, and professionals.

The academic quality of proposals is decisive for obtaining the award. Preference will be given to those without prior experience in the partner country, provided the overall quality of submitted projects is comparable.

Applications from Czech citizens for awards in the Fulbright Scholar Program, Fulbright-Masaryk Program, and Proshek-Fulbright Program are subject to a peer-review process (using experts from universities, research institutions, and foreign experts). For each program a selection committee, appointed by the Board, interviews the candidates.

The Board, taking into account the recommendations of the selection committee, availability of funds, and other program requirements, announces the final nomination of Fulbright grantees in the Czech Republic.

The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarships Board, nominated by the U.S. President and located in Washington, DC, is the final institution approving all Fulbright grants.

Czech citizens apply directly at the Czech Fulbright Commission (with exception of the Fulbright-Schuman Program that is administered by the Fulbright Commission in Belgium).

We support annually about 30-40 Czech citizens.
