What does the application process imply?

Now the Fulbright Global Scholar Award expects what is called “application building.” With this the student creates a competitive application, but before you set out planning out how to build this application, on the Fulbright website, they insist that each applicant watches their webinar about how to successfully create one.

Below as an applicant you receive a small glimpse into the detail that is needed for each visit to the country of your choice. The amount of planning involved is highly important, being able to schedule out as much as possible will work in each student favor.

What is the duration of each visit?

Luckly each stay for which country the student is picked to visit and live in for a duration of time is between at least 3-6 months and if it’s possible the only minimum below that is 1 month.

Students will need to give and plan out a projected project to present that has activities attached, and it is by rule that a student must attend two different world countries at least. Each activity needs to have purpose and should build common ground as to why it is important that this activity should happen.

Be sure to look into what the stipends for the award is, simply because each country has a different currency that may either rise or fall in the money department.

The application submission deadline is September 12, 2021.
