Fulbright Awards (for US students)

Tuition fees, plus £12,950 maintenance

One award is available for an American postgraduate wishing to undertake a Master’s or higher research programme in any discipline at the University of Kent for 2019-20.

The award will include (for one year only), full tuition fee waiver from the University, plus a £12950 contribution towards general maintenance costs (accommodation, travel, subsistence, etc) while in the UK.


The Fulbright Awards Programme is looking not only for academic excellence, but also:

  • demonstrable ambassadorial skills with evidence of cultural sensitivity and a genuine desire to learn more about the United Kingdom and share with British citizens aspects of American culture,
  • experience and interest in a range of extracurricular and community activities,
  • leadership potential, and
  • a desire to further the Fulbright Programme and give back to your home country upon returning.

In addition, all candidates must meet the minimum eligibility for this Award category:

  • US citizen resident anywhere except the United Kingdom, and
  • hold or expect to receive a Bachelor's degree (or equivalent professional training or experience) in a relevant area before departure to the UK.


The deadline for this scholarship for 2019/20 has passed. Details for 2020/21 will be published here when available
