About this scholarship

scholarship image

The Australian-American Fulbright Commission offers Scholarships to Australian citizens across all career stages. Awardees take part in a bi-lateral academic and cultural exchange, pursuing research or study at a U.S. institution, experiencing life in the United States of America, and bringing back their knowledge and experience to share with their communities in Australia.

A Fulbright Award is more than a Scholarship - it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering "leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures... It is a modest program with an immodest aim-the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilized, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past."



Scholarship amounts vary according to the length and type of scholarship, but a typical post-graduate scholarship is valued at $40,000.
