The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the opening of the Fulbright Foreign Student Program competition for 2023-2024. The program, which covers a maximum of two academic years of graduate study in the United States beginning in August 2023, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State through the U.S. Embassy Beirut.
The grant includes round-trip airfare between Lebanon and the United States, university tuition, books, health insurance, and accommodation. Expenses of Fulbright student dependents (spouse, children, parents, etc.) are not covered.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously studied in the United States. Fulbright students must return to Lebanon for at least two years upon completion of the program and will not be eligible for U.S. employment, immigration, or residency visas during this time. Fulbright students are at once eligible to apply for student, tourist, and business visas to the United States after completing the Fulbright program.
The deadline for submission of all application documents is Monday, May 2, 2022 (11:59 p.m. Beirut time) including the online application and supporting documents to AMIDEAST.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview in June 2022.
Originally offered by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1945, this scholarship has become the US government’s flagship program for international educational exchange. The program is fully funded by the US Congress and administered by AMIDEAST.
The competition is merit-based and applicants from all walks of life are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be considered regardless of race, religion, gender, age and/or physical disability.
