Fulbright Project Proposal Template, Guide

It is desired, that you already know what your research field (or even problem) is going to be during your research visit. If possible, you should write this with your home or foreign adviser, so it matches your desired PhD thesis proposal. Since there are a lot of different instructions available on the Web, I put together a mind map that presents the most important facts you should list.

Fulbright Project Proposal Template

To summarize the most important points:

  1. It’s best to already have a research contact, the adviser that is prepared to host you at a University in the USA. Write the project proposal together with him or/and your local research adviser.
  2. At the beginning, make a clear statement on what exactly you are going to do. Also, a declare a feasible timeline for the research.
  3. The reviewer should be convinced that your research is important, you are the best person to conduct it and that your visit to the USA is essential.

    Hello there.. I am sure the number of hits this website receives tells you how much people find it useful. I have applied for the 2016/2017 Fulbright Scholarship and was shortlisted for the interview which I did last week. The interview, however, was not a face to face- I received a phone call from the Fulbright Office in my counrty (DRC). I would like to say that the interview went well. There was a question, however, which sort of caught off guard. This was related to a Project Proposal, nothing in the application form indicated as a requirement to have one. I am applying for a scholarship for a graduate program (Master of Science) in Information Technology. I answered the question the best I could with references from my personal statement. Now, here’s my question to you- I am thinking of emailing my Fulbright office a project proposal that I have put together as a supplemental piece of information– Is it oka to that at this stage? Would you recommend that I write to them and say hey.. here’s a supplemental info pertaining to my project proposal. Thanks, Benzinho

      Hi Benzinho. I think that it’s best to first call/email your Fulbright office and ask them whether the proposal would be of any use to them. It’s a signal that you care about your application and will also remind them of you :)

    It would have been much help to us if you would have provided us your personal statement letter, project proposal etc.
